MDC Engages ZEC Over Recognition Of New Party Using Its Name

The MDC led by Nelson Chamisa has protested to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) after the electoral body recognised a new party calling itself MDC Zimbabwe.

MDC acting secretary-general Jameson Timba registered the party’s displeasure in a letter on Monday addressed to ZEC Chief Elections Officer Utloile Silaigwana. Wrote Timba:

Firstly, as a key stakeholder represented in Parliament and known to you, we were not given an opportunity to express ourselves on the validity of the claim by any of the said individuals.

May we remind you that you are a public officer in charge of a public institution and as such, you should conduct yourself within the bounds of the constitution and in particular the requirements of administrative justice.

ZEC recently announced that it had received a notification of existence from a party called the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Zimbabwe which is headquartered in Gweru.

The bona fide MDC is worried that the new party will confuse voters during voting, moreso with another MDC (MDC-T) led by Thokozani Khupe have caused confusion in the 2018 polls.
