Parties to the election petition by the MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa met today at the Constitutional Court Registry to consolidate the record in preparation for the hearing of the challenge on Wednesday.

The pre-trial meeting saw litigants with the help of justice officers defining the issues and determining the way the actual contestation will proceed.

The meeting was also held in compliance with an order issued last week by Chief Justice Luke Malaba at a case management meeting held in his chambers.

MDC Alliance legal team representative, Advocate Sylvester Hashiti said they are impressed with the preparations ahead of the hearing on Wednesday.

“So far so good, we are just waiting for the final day, we are seeing all going on well,” he said.

Zanu PF legal team representative, Tinomudaishe Chinyoka said they are ready for the hearing of the court challenge.

“We are always ready for any challenge and we anticipate everything to go well,” he said.

The meeting was held after the filing of all the necessary court papers for the challenge to ensure the record will be in order.
