The period under
review witnessed important political developments including an agreement
by political parties on the date
for the referendum which is on 16 March 2013. The Zimbabwe Electoral
Commission chairperson, Justice Simpson Mutambanengwe, also resigned
just months before the country holds crucial harmonized elections.
The period also noticed raids by police on several NGOs in Bulawayo,
Masvingo and Harare where alleged subversive material was seized.
Given the call for elections by President Mugabe, the need to continue
to monitor the environment remains critical as the country moves
towards an imminent election.
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. For comments and feedback email: firstname.lastname@example.org
