Zimbabwe not ready for elections


0

Finance Minister and Movement for Democratic Change secretary-general Tendai Biti said Zimbabwe was not ready for elections. “I don’t think we are in a position today, right now, of having legitimate, credible, sustainable elections….At the rate we are going, it is obvious that we are going to have another flawed election … Zimbabweans cannot afford another flawed election.” The MDC and President Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front agree that the country must hold elections this year but not on the date. ZANU-PF wants them at the end of June while MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai, who is the country’s Prime Minister, has suggested September.
