ZEC Releases The COVID-19 Policy On Electoral Activities

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has published the COVID-19 Policy on Electoral Activities which is meant to provide guidance on procedures and conduct of electoral activities/processes in a COVID-19 prone environment.

According to ZEC, the publishing of the policy document ” stems from the realization that the pandemic will be with the world for some time to come and it is now the ‘New Normal’, hence the need to navigate through it”.

The document is meant to assist and safeguard the ZEC Commissioners and staff members, staff seconded to ZEC for electoral duties, the electorate, political players (Candidates, Supporters and Political Parties), the media, electoral observers and other electoral stakeholders.

ZEC said the policy must be read together with the National Health Act, Statutory Instruments relating to COVID-19 and the National Policy on the virus.
