ZEC will display unverified voters roll but not verified roll demanded by law - why bother
Published: 21 July 2019 (175 Views)
"THE Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) is next month set to initiate a pilot project of displaying the voters' roll outside a polling station during three by-elections to be held in Matabeleland North province," reported Bulawayo24.

ZEC is going to display the voters' roll which is failed to produce for verification, which denied 3 million Zimbabwean in the diaspora a vote, etc., etc. To what end and purpose, one has to ask, especially now after the elections were rigged and ZEC played a major role in the rigging?

"The electoral commission lacked full independence and appeared to not always act in an impartial manner," stated the EU Mission final report.

"The final results as announced by the Electoral Commission contained numerous errors and lacked adequate traceability, transparency and verifiability. Finally, the restrictions on political freedoms, the excessive use of force by security forces and abuses of human rights in the post-election period undermined the corresponding positive aspects during the pre-election campaign. As such, many aspects of the 2018 elections in Zimbabwe failed to meet international standards."

Last year's elections were not free, fair and credible as the process was full of flaws and illegalities it is nonsense to suggest such a process can ever produce a legal and legitimate result. Utter nonsense!

Zimbabwe does not have a legitimate government with the people's democratic mandate to govern. The Zanu PF government is illegitimate and hence the reason the country is a pariah state.

As long as Zimbabwe remain a pariah state ruled by corrupt, incompetent and vote rigging thugs the country will never achieve any meaningful economic recovery. No investor wants to do business with thugs!

Zanu PF has rigged elections in the, insisted the elections were free and fair, declared itself the winner and legitimate government and presented the nation and the world at large with a fait accompli. Rigging the elections, ipso facto confirming the country it's pariah state status, was the easy bit. With investors shying away, the regime has to "rig" economic recovery too – clearly a bridge too far!

Zimbabwe's economic meltdown has pushed unemployment to nauseating heights of 90%, millions now live in abject poverty and basic services such health care have all but collapsed. The country has a chronic shortage of fuel, food, medicine, etc.

In a futile attempt to "rig" economic recovery the regime has prematurely abolished the use of the multi-foreign currencies as legal tender unleashed the scourge of hyperinflation. Inflation was 97% when the regime imposed the Z$ as the only legal tender a month ago; it has since surged to 175%. Last time inflation soared to 500 billion % and the economy was left in ruins; we are clearly set for a repeat!

As much as Zanu PF would like to pretend otherwise, Zimbabwe is not a democracy and the country is in serious economic trouble and the situation is getting worse, not better!

As stated above, as long as the country remains a pariah state; the economic situation will only get worse. The only way out is for Zanu PF to step down so the nation can appoint an interim administration tasked to implement the reforms and end this curse of rigged elections and pariah state. There is no other way out!

So ZEC will display unverified voters' roll but will not do what it is required to do by law such as to produce verified voters' roll; display on each polling station the V11 forms, summary of votes cast for each candidate; etc.; etc. In any case this will do nothing to get the country out of the political and constitutional crisis of having a pariah state because last year's elections were rigged!
