August 25, 2008
The appointment of 8
of the Provincial Governors and 3 of the appointed Senators was
announced late yesterday
These appointments will
ensure that ZANU PF have the majority of Senate Seats - of the elected
Senators ZANU PF have 30, MDC T 24 and MDC M 6. With the new appointments
ZANU PF can rely on another 11 votes. The Senator chiefs number
18 – traditionally they have voted ZANU PF
This will mean the offices
of President and Deputy President of the Senate will likely go to
ZANU PF nominees.

is by secret ballot, as for the Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the
House of Assembly.

seats there are two appointed Senate seats and two provincial governors
