Zanu-PF rules out diaspora vote for 2023 elections

Zanu-PF acting political commissar, Patrick Chinamasa, says Zimbabwe won’t set up election centers outside Zimbabwe during national polls unless the nation makes the necessary constitutional amendments and targeted sanctions imposed on some top Zanu PF officials are removed.

Zimbabwe holds the next general elections in 2023, expected to be hotly contested by Zanu-PF and the opposition MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa.

Speaking at a press conference, Chinamasa said Zimbabweans living in the diaspora are free to go home and register to vote and then go back to vote at their own expense.

But irate Zimbabweans living in the diaspora say Chinamasa’s remarks are retrogressive as all citizens have a right to vote as enshrined in the country’s constitution. ■
