Zim Election Announcement ”Scandalous” – Opposition

Zimbabwe’s opposition on Friday denounced the official results from a March 29 presidential poll as “scandalous,” claiming its candidate had won an outright majority over Robert Mugabe.

 

“Without doubt, ZEC (Zimbabwe’s Electoral Commission) has jumped the gun. This is scandalous. How do you announce a result without verification … What is clear is that we won this election and there is no budget for a run-off,” opposition spokesman Nelson Chamisa told AFP.
