Delimitation Likely To Remove Some Parliamentary Seats From Bulawayo – Report

A ZEC official has revealed that MDC’s stronghold, Bulawayo, will likely lose parliamentary seats in the upcoming delimitation exercise as it registered the least number of voters in the previous election season.

Time Madondo, ZEC’s Voter Registration And Delimitation Director speaking at a workshop in Harare said:

Some of the seats will be merged to form one constituency due to the continuous dwindling of registered voters in the province, leaving them with few representatives in the Parliament

According to ZEC, a seat should have at least 27 000 voters to get a representative in Parliament. However some seats in Harare like Harare South, Epworth and Budiriro have 70k, 69k and 40k respectively and ZEC thinks the situation needs to be addressed in the next election.
