MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has said that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) must be disbanded unless it accedes to the demands of the MDC Alliance. Chamisa is proposing that the elections should be run by an independent commission which includes Sadc and the African Union. Speaking at a rally in Mutare, Chamisa said,
Our position as the MDC Alliance is that (ZEC chairperson Justice Priscilla) Chigumba and her commission should accede to our demands, failure to which we want them to step aside. We now need an independent electoral body before the elections, which should include Sadc and the African Union. We are now at a stage where we say enough is enough and we have support for our position.
…We are going to announce a programme that we have against the rigging of elections next week (this week). We are going to resist any attempt to rig elections in Zimbabwe.
