The Ad Hoc Committee that was appointed by Parliament to analyse the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission preliminary report on the delimitation exercise today said while it appreciated that it is not possible for ZEC to meet the expectations of all the stakeholders in this exercise, it is Its considered view that all the issues raised in its report, particularly those that are inconsistent with provisions of section 161 of the Constitution, will be resolved before the finalisation of the report on the delimitation exercise.
“As espoused in section 119 of the Constitution, Parliament has an obligation to protect the Constitution and ensure that the State and all institutions and agencies of government at every level, act constitutionally and in the national interest,” the committee said.
Below is its full report:
