Government has ruled out the holding of by elections this year due to coronavirus restrictions.
This comes as the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission has set December 5 as a possible date for local authorities and national assembly by elections.
Parliamentary and Legal Affairs Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi said it’s not possible to have by elections this year. He said he did not know where ZEC got the December 5 dates from because the President is the one who proclaims the dates.
However, speaking at a meeting organised by the Election Resource Centre recently, ZEC chairperson Priscilla Chigumba said that the nomination court is set for October 23.
