    July 04, 2013

    The Constitutional Court has dismissed Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and three others’ applications, in which the quartet was contesting the holding of elections by end of this month.

    All the nine judges sitting as a constitutional court unanimously ruled that the PM’s application be dismissed and that elections should be held on the 31st of July 2013 in line with its earlier ruling in the Constitutional Court Case Number CCZ1/13 filed by Jealous Mbizvo Mawarire vs. President Mugabe and others.

    In dismissing the matter the Constitutional Court reserved reasons for its ruling. There was no order for costs given.

    The four applications were made after President Robert Mugabe unilaterally proclaimed July 31 as the day for the holding of elections, following a Constitutional Court order.
