#ElectionsZW: Rebuild Zimbabwe Party sets conditions for 2023 elections

Rebuild Zimbabwe Party has set two conditions that it wants to be addressed before the 2023 elections are held.

Zimbabwe is expected to hold the highly expected general elections in 2023 and is currently working towards holding by-elections on the 26th of March.

The 2023 elections will mark the second term for President Emmerson Mnangagwa who came into office in 2017 through a military-assisted operation restore legacy.

Mnangagwa then went on to narrowly win the 2018 general elections for his first full term.

However, as the country warms up to 2023 general elections preparation, the Rebuild Zimbabwe Party has set conditions that should be addressed first.

‘’Two conditions for holding the 2023 harmonised elections. 1) candidates losing the election to the Office of the President of Zimbabwe will have to concede defeat. In addition to that, they will have to pledge to support the winning candidate.

‘’2) conditions under which power will be peacefully transferred must be agreed upon by all candidates to the Office of the President of Zimbabwe before the 2023 Harmonised Elections. Whoever loses the elections must peacefully hand over power to the winner.

‘’If these two conditions are not met, then the 2023 harmonised elections must be suspended,’’ said party leader Everisto Chikanga.

Chikanga is not the only election stakeholder in the country who is asking for electoral reforms from the general elections.

Others had anticipated that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) would use the by-elections to identify gaps that need to be addressed.

However, on its part, ZEC has on several occasions advised that it does not have the power to reform itself and that the powers lie with Parliament.

ZEC chairperson Priscilla Chigumba is on record advising Zimbabwe to engage their representatives with requests for the changes they desire for ZEC.
