HIS EXCELLENCY THE HONOURABLE ROBERT GABRIEL MUGABE, G.C.Z.M., President
of Zimbabwe and Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Forces of Zimbabwe.
Proclamation 2 of 2008, published in Statutory Instrument 7A of
2008, I fixed the day for the holding of an election to the office
of President, and a general election and elections for members of
the governing bodies of local authorities and provided for the places
and day on which nomination courts would sit and the days on which
polling would take place;
it is provided by section 38(4) of the Electoral Act [Chapter 2:13]
(No. 25 of 2004) that, subject to section 58 of the Constitution,
the President may, by further proclamation in the Gazette, alter
any day, time or place that he has fixed in a proclamation under
the said section 38;
I consider it desirable to postpone the day specified in the said
Proclamation 2 of 2008 for the holding of nomination courts without,
however, altering the polling day fixed in the said proclamation:
under and by virtue of the powers vested in the President as aforesaid,
I do, by this my Proclamation, alter to Friday the 15th day of February,
2008, the day on which a nomination court will sit at each of the
places specified in the said Proclamation 2 of 2008 for the purpose
of receiving nominations of candidates for election to the office
of President and as members of Parliament and of the governing bodies
of local authorities.
Given under my hand and the Public Seal of Zimbabwe at Harare, this
fifth day of February, in the year of our Lord two thousand and
By Command of the President.
