This update presents a summary description of some political developments in the constituencies. Committee set up to deal with areas of disagreements in the 2nd All Stakeholders conference. The three principals have tasked a three member cabinet team, which will be drawn from ZANU PF, two MDC formations, joined in group discussions by the three COPAC co-chairs Hon. Edward Mkhosi, Hon. Mangwana and Hon. Mwonzora and chaired by Hon Minister Eric Matinenga. The MDC-led by Prof Ncube was excluded from the meeting and it has since said that it does not recognize the committee and has since written to the facilitator to intervene. This latest stalemate has raised doubts about Zimbabwe ability to get the draft to a referendum in time for elections which the President says will be held in March 2013

The Minister of Finance as he presented the budget said the Constitutional Referendum and Elections would exceed US$150 million way above the proposed amount which was budgeted. In line with these he appealed to donors and well-wishers to fund the processes.

The Zimbabwe Election Support Network remains dedicated to the promotion of democratic elections in Zimbabwe. In line with this objective, we continue to analyse the political environment in the 210 constituencies where observers are deployed. This update is informed by observations from these constituencies and broadly captures national political developments in Zimbabwe.
