Rights Groups Warn Against New Zim Elections

Church and human rights groups say the describe the Zimbabwean situation as tense ahead of next year’s elections 

Church and human rights groups in Zimbabwe have warned against new elections saying the situation in the country is ‘highly volatile, uncertain and tense’ after a bloody presidential run-off election two years ago.

In a press statement, the group, which include the Zimbabwe Council of Churches, the Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe, the Christian Alliance and the Student Christian Movement of Zimbabwe, state that, "The polarised environment does not favour the holding of elections as violence would most likely erupt."

The group, whose comment comes after President Robert Mugabe's call for ZANU-PF supporters to prepare for elections in 2011, argues that the political environment remains highly volatile, uncertain, and tense in that country.
