    Honourable Prime Minister,

    In my capacity as President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, I hereby inform you that I have today issued a Proclamation calling for the holding of Harmonized Elections, and fixing 28 June 2013 as the date for the nomination of aspiring candidates and 31 July 2013 as the date for holding the polls.

    This Proclamation has been preceded by the enactment of the Electoral Amendments that were approved by Cabinet on 11 June 2013.

    Given the need to comply with the deadline for elections as imposed upon me by the Constitutional Court Judgement, it became inexpedient to await the passage through Parliament of the Electoral Amendment Bill to align the Electoral Law with the new Constitution. Accordingly, I found it necessary to invoke the Presidential Powers (Temporary Measures) Act, Chapter 10:20 in order to comply with the Order given by the Constitutional Court.

    Yours sincerely,

    R G Mugabe
    President of the Republic of Zimbabwe
