Opposition MDC Alliance has issued a statement demanding for the the removal of Health and Child Care Minister Constantino Chiwenga’s Statutory Instrument 225 of 2020 indefinitely suspending by-elections citing it as a violation of the people’s will.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission had last month declared that the by-elections would be held on December 5.

MDC Alliance secretary for elections Ian Makone said constitutional imperative cannot be overturned by a subsidiary legislation as the Constitution is the supreme law.

Below is the full statement by the MDC Alliance.
