Zim Election Date ‘Unrealistic’ – ZESN

NGOs are opposed to President Robert Mugabe’s plan to hold national elections in March 2013

There has been ongoing criticism of President Robert Mugabe’s intentions to hold elections in March 2013, with civil society groups warning this date is ‘unrealistic’ and ‘impossible’.

In a press statement, the Zimbabwe Election Support Network says that civic groups have also said elections in March will not be free and fair, because of the lack of key reforms that still need to take place by then.

The organisation argues that, “Logistically, the timing of the elections is impossible given a number of fundamental issues that need time, resources, commitment and the political will to ensure that these elections are conducted in an environment that promotes democracy.”
