In a statement yesterday, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) denied Professor Jonathan Moyo’s claim that it has already availed a physical copy of the voters’ roll to Zanu-PF.
Zec said it is in the second round of de-deplication exercise of the voters’ roll to deal with people who registered during inspection of the BVR. Said Zec;
That is false and mischievous (that Zec has availed the voters’ roll to Zanu PF). The voters’ roll will be furnished to all political parties and candidates once the commission avails it in line with the provisions of the (Electoral) Act.
