Tinashe Sambiri| The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has claimed that it is neutral in the execution of prescribed constitutional duties.

ZEC is under pressure from stakeholders due to its decision to sideline the MDC Alliance from key meetings.

Political observers say ZEC is a direct extension of Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Zanu PF party.

In a feeble attempt to salvage its dwindling reputation ZEC claimed:

“The first hallmark of Justice is upholding the law. Whatever it is Agree with it/Disagree with it. ZEC will uphold the law until it is changed. Misinformation and disinformation is subversion of democracy. Laws are changed in Parliament not by an Electoral Management Body.

ZEC is neutral in that it applies the law consistently.”
