Zec Should Print Ballot Papers On Bond Paper To Minimise Rigging: Zanu

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has been taken to the High Court by opposition Zanu leader Chawaona Wilbroad Kanoti. Kanoti wants the High Court to order Zec to print ballot papers on ordinary bond papers to minimise chances of cheating in the 30 July harmonised elections. Part of Kanoti’s court papers read,

If the first respondent (Zec) is transparent and accountable and truly at law and indeed independent as is expected and required of such an independent commission, it should be ready and not fear to switch and to use normal bond paper at the forthcoming 2018 national elections…This has been notoriously popularly now known as the ‘Nikuv’ the use of claimed special paper that has such a chemical composition it ‘swallows’ a voter’s mark for the immediate appearance of an already existing watermark against a favoured contestant’s name.

…First respondent’s conduct in so far as the procurement of ballot papers is concerned has caused alarm upon applicant and without doubt the general public.

The matter is yet to be set down for hearing.
