Zec extends BVR blitz campaign

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has announced the extension of its mobile voter registration exercise by one month.

The exercise will resume on 10 January to 8 February 2017.

The move was also necessitated by a 29 November 2017 High Court Judgement which said former aliens should be allowed to vote and the issuing of IDs to some citizens who had no documents at the beginning of the exercise and have since obtained them from the Registrar-General’s mobile registration exercise.

Some youngsters who have just attained the voting age will also be accommodated through the mop up exercise.

Elections are slated for between July and August in 2018.
