Outcry over presidential ballot paper

HARARE - Civic society groups and the main opposition coalition — the MDC Alliance — are protesting the presidential ballot paper outline, which has been designed in a manner that gives President Emmerson Mnangagwa a prime position ahead of his main rival.

Such complaints works against the opposition. Frivolous and somehow childish. How can all the opposition parties be inserted into that position you call prime ? For that reason it gives Zec a credit for throwing you anywhere they saw it fit. After all do people vote for position on ballot paper or for a candidate ? If you want them tocross at a position then tell your supporters the position on which you are slotted then they will jump 1 and give you the victory you want. Good Luck !

If you dont know the law its better to shut up.ZEC and ZANU made a mistake when they refused to align the laws to the constitution.There is a close in the Electoral Act that makes Zec to use the design of Alphabetically placing candidates and in a single role not two as they have done.Mnangagwa was to be somewhere in the middle of the ballot paper so it was going to be difficult to play any tricks with the ballot paper.

of the 23 Presidential Seat contestors, only 2 are at the forefront of crying over ballot. Why appearing so stupid. Instead of fighting horrors reigning because of cash crisis - you loud "ZEC ZEC" enough MDC/t/lie-ance

So according to MDC, the candidate on the first position will win the Presidential Elections. This SRC grouping is just farce
