Zanu-PF legal secretary Paul Mangwana said Nelson Chamisa cannot prove the presidential election results announced by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) were wrong because he they did not request a recount of votes as provided in the Electoral Act.
Section 67 A (1) of the Electoral Act (Chapter 2:13) that deals with Recounting of Votes states that any party can request a recount of votes within 48 hours in writing. It can also state specifically the number of votes believed to have been miscounted and, if possible, how the miscount may have occurred. Mangwana said Chamisa does not have the correct results because he did not order a recount. Said Mangwana:
They did not make use of that provision. If they felt that the votes were not properly counted, they had the option to request a recount. They cannot prove before the court that the results were wrong as they do not have the correct results.
