The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has said it has not resumed electoral activities despite relaxation of lockdown measures by the government.
Posting on Twitter, ZEC said they will deliberate on the appropriate time to resume the electoral activities while adding that they are busy conducting preliminary delimitation desk work.
“Contrary to some reports, the Commission has not resumed any electoral activities. As you may be aware, the current relaxed lockdown measures were announced on 01 March 2021 hence the Commission will deliberate on the appropriate time to resume the electoral activities.
“The commission is only conducting preliminary delimitation desk work. Some pilot ground work was conducted last year when lockdown measures were relaxed,” ZEC said.
ZEC has come under increasing criticism for not conducting by-elections to replace legislators and councilors recalled by a rival MDC faction led by Douglas Mwonzora.
