CCJP notes voting irregularities

The Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace in Zimbabwe has requested ZEC to provide the results within the timeframe mandated by the electoral laws after the church recorded a number of electoral irregularities during the harmonised elections conducted yesterday.

In a press conference today, Alexio Muchabaiwa, on behalf of CCJP, said the church was concerned about some irregularities reported at a number of polling stations yesterday around the country.

"A significant number of voters could not find their names on the voters' roll despite having registered to vote. 433 people in Mutare were turned way yesterday with similar incidences also reported in Gokwe and Hwange resulting in hundred of registered voters failing to cast their votes," he said.

He further noted that by close of polls yesterday, there were reports of intimidation or coercion, irregular or inconsistent vote counting, observers being denied access to polling stations and the unexplained shifting of ballot boxes.
