People’s Rainbow Coalition (PRC) presidential candidate, Joice Mujuru has said that the playing field in uneven ahead of the July 30 harmonised elections. In an interview with The Standard, Mujuru said
…we note with concern the uneven playing field in terms of mobilisation resources, and the violence which has met our campaign teams in various provinces, but more prevalent in Mashonaland Central and Mashonaland East. However, we are ready to receive votes on July 30.
…We have noted the impartiality of traditional leadership in relating to opposition parties in Zimbabwe. We have realised that the current electoral system is expensive and favours the ruling party.
We have established that the Political Parties Finance Act needs to be reviewed with a view to allow mobilisation to be fair to all contesting parties. We have also noted abuse of state resources by the ruling party towards its campaign.
However, the conduct of the police has been outstanding while the general people have welcomed PRC into their homes and hearts…..Issues around administration of ZEC (Zimbabwe Electoral Commission) and its staff remain contentious and are subject to further improvement.
