ZEC did not respond to a High Court application by a lawyer and private citizen, Justice Alfred Mavedzenge, who sought to force the commission to make the electronic voters’ roll public. The 10 day grace period expired on Wednesday, June 4, after which a default judgement would be made.
However, the High Court is yet to avail the default judgement. Section 239 of the new constitution provides that ZEC be responsible for voter registration and the compilation of the roll.
However, the Zimbabwe Election Support Network, during a recent workshop, said it was not clear if the commission would have to start afresh and compile a completely new one or depend on the old roll to which changes would be made.Post published in: News
