Mnangagwa Justifies Dialogue Without Chamisa

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has justified dialogue without main opposition leader Nelson Chamisa.

Briefing the media after the meeting, Mnangagwa said Zanu-PF and the other political parties that are part of the dialogue process he initiated constitute the majority of Zimbabweans. Mnangagwa said the dialogue participants make up over 60% of the Zimbabwean vote. Mnangagwa won the election with 50.8 percent of the vote;  just enough to meet the 50 percent threshold needed to avoid a run-off against Chamisa, who scored 44.3 percent. That percentage was eventually reduced to 50.6 percent by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission before the Constitutional Court ruled in favor of Mnangagwa. Said Mnangagwa:

So we are happy that we are moving together with the rest of the political parties, except one or two who have not, but we and other political parties constitute the majority of the people in this country. If you put our vote Zanu PF and that of the others the six percent, two percent, one percent we are over 60 percent.
