Mwonzora fights on…approaches High Court in a bid to stop elections

by Bustop TV News

OPPOSITION Douglas Mwonzora has filed a High Court application protesting a Constitutional Court ruling in a case he is challenging the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC)’s final delimitation report.

The Constitutional court on Monday threw away  Mwonzora’s application seeking nullification of the delimitation report and a delay of the elections set for July.


In his initial delimitation report challenge, Mwonzora argued the report gazetted in February was flawed and created room for a rigged election.

He described the judgement as political, unfair and a ‘recipe for disaster and is approaching the High Court with the same issues.

“What the con court did, opened an avenue for us to file the application before the High Court. We have prepared our papers and today we are filing our application before the High Court seeking exactly the same relief.

“We argued that a declaration must be made that the delimitation report is invalid, ZEC must be ordered to redo, and the proclamation by the president must follow his receipt of a correct delimitation report.

“The issues we raised in the constitutional court are exactly the same issues we will raise in the High Court,” Mwonzora said.
