Opposition parties have condemned the voters’ roll which was released by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) after the electoral body admitted that the roll is not yet complete. The opposition also said that the roll is missing critical data such as photographs.
Coalition of Democrats presidential candidate Elton Mangoma said:
You can’t work with it. I don’t know if others are competent enough to work with it. It is not just only about pictures, but it is unworkable. It is as good as we don’t have the voters’ roll. I can’t even check if my name is there. I only know it is there because they accepted my nomination. We will continue to demand a voters’ roll.
MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa also said,

Commenting on the matter Zec vice-chairperson Emmanuel Magade said,
Anyone who registered to vote before June 2 on the closure of the voters’ roll will vote in this election in line with the laws of the country. Their names are still to be added to the voters’ roll because this is work in progress, those names will be added to the voters’ roll that will be used during the polls.
