Zimbabwe’s President to announce election date by month-end

1 min read

Zimbabwe’s president Emmerson Mnangagwa says he will announce dates for the general elections within the next two weeks.
Addressing party supporters in the eastern province of Manicaland, Mnangagwa said the proclamation of the elections would come by month-end.
These will be the first polls since the resignation of former leader Robert Mugabe who stepped down last November after military intervention.
The ‘coup’ subsequently elevated Mnangagwa to the country’s top post and head of Zanu PF party.
The elections will also be the first without Mugabe’s name on the ballot since Zimbabwe gained its independence from Britain in 1980.
Last week, Zimbabwe’s parliament passed the Electoral Amendment Bill last week, which now awaits president’s approval.
The bill will empower the President to sign the legislative changes into law and subsequently proclaim dates for the nomination court sitting and the actual polls
