The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) has begun looking for a substantive chief executive officer after the post fell vacant following the departure of Mrs Constance Chigwamba earlier this year.
Mr Utloile Silaigwana has been the acting chief elections officer since March this year. Zec said applicants must hold a good first class degree in Administration, Social Sciences, Law, Information Technology, Business administration, education or any other relevant qualifications as well as a relevant Master’s degree, proven track record, delivery and good governance. The closing date for receipt of application is 28 December 2018
In a vacancy notice yesterday, Zec said the chief elections officer would be reporting to the chairperson of the commission and the commission. The commission said the CEO would be the accounting officer of the commission responsible for strategising, formulating and coordinating the activities of the Commission in the conduct of all referendums and elections to the offices stipulated in the law.
