Zanu PF anticipates increasing its support base ahead of the 2018 harmonised elections by taking advantage of the new Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) voter registration requirements.

This was said by Dangamvura-Chikanga legislator Cde Esau Mupfumi.

As part of broader preparations for the 2018 harmonised elections, Cde Mupfumi launched a voter registration and education awareness campaign in his constituency to ensure that the electorate prepares for the new ZEC requirements.

Launching the campaign at Chirovakamwe Primary School, Cde Mupfumi underscored that the ruling party is geared to increase its support base to give it a convincing victory come 2018.

He said the new ZEC voting requirements create a golden opportunity for the party to increase its support base as youths and every other progressive citizen will be given an opportunity to register and participate in the coming elections.

Cde Mupfumi called upon the Dangamvura-Chikanga electorate to vote for Zanu PF presidential candidate, President Robert Mugabe and return the party’s dominance especially in urban areas.

ZEC will introduce biometric voter registration (BVR) process for the 2018 elections and the electoral body is hoping to receive 400 biometric voter registration kits soon.

Zimbabwe is not re-inventing the wheel, but is following the footsteps of other countries such as Tanzania, Togo and Ghana.
