We are digesting the reports-EU

The European Union says it is waiting for reports from regional observer missions which were accredited to observe the just ended election for it to come out with its position on Zimbabwe.

The European Union has been lifting sanctions it imposed on senior Zanu (PF) officials more than a decade ago in installments since the formation of inclusive government four years ago.

The western bloc has also said it would work with President Robert Mugabe if he was to be democratically elected.

“Let’s try to be precise and accurate .The EU has said that we are ready to work with any government that would result from elections that are credible, peaceful and transparent.

“We are still waiting for those who were observing these elections to come out with their assessments in order to make our own assessment,” EU Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Aldo Dell'Ariccia,told The Zimbabwean in an exclusive interview in Harare on Thursday.

The EU was not invited to observe the elections whose results are being contested.

The Southern African Development Community, Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa and the African Union observer missions have described the July 31 polls as peaceful and free, but have not be drawn to say if they were fair and credible.
