Ruling ZANU PF Political Commissar, Mike Bimha has said the results of the recent ZANU-PF Provincial Elections given out remain provisional and preliminary and will be subjected to the wisdom of Politburo deliberations and processing of legitimate complaints raised by others. Pindula News presents Bimha’s statement:
ZANU PF DIRECTIVE ON THE JUST ENDED PROVINCIAL ELECTIONS
The National Political Commissar hereby issues this categorical directive as earlier indicated during our Press Conference held on the 31st of December 2021 releasing provisional results, that there are no winners nor losers as yet following the holding of successful Provincial Elections across the nation. As such, all members of the Party and contestants in the just-ended elections must stop all activities aimed at celebrating victory or expression of disgruntlements.
The 358th Ordinary Session of the Politburo which was set as the National Elections Directorate of the Party dissolved all the outgoing ten provincial executives and nothing has changed so far, except that we had successful provincial elections to choose new executives. As an established rule and tradition of the Party, until the Politburo convenes to deliberate on the outcomes as announced at the aforementioned press conference, the results given out remain provisional and preliminary and will be subjected to the wisdom of Politburo deliberations and processing of legitimate complaints raised by others.
For the record, as the National Political Commissar, I did not declare any winners in both the Youth, Women and Main Wings because that is outside of the scope of my responsibility. It is the responsibility of the collective of the leadership. The media is advised to take note of this position.
All cadres of the Party are hereby reminded to abide by this directive until further notice. No deviations from this directive will be tolerated.
Finally, ZANU PF reiterates that the provincial elections were focused on re-energizing and uniting the Party ahead of the 2023 elections and not to divide it.
ZANU PF wishes you all a prosperous and productive 2022.
Cde Dr Mike Bimha
National Political Commissar
