A visiting German delegation of the country’s parliamentarians has concurred with Zanu PF that elections must be held this year.
The parliamentarians who earlier on during the week paid a visit to Zanu PF National Chairman, Ambassador Simon Khaya-Moyo, called for an expedition of the constitution-making process.
Head of delegation, Mr. Stefan Liebich, said German parliamentarians want the constitution-making process concluded without any more delays.
“I hope you will finish the constitution and then go to a referendum next month and before the year ends, you hold elections,” he said.
Ambassador Khaya-Moyo noted that with Germany now singing from the same page with President Robert Mugabe that elections must be held this year, those who sought to delay the process will lose out against the will of the people.
He said: “The Germans have realised that there is need for progress and as Zimbabwe we thank them for taking that stance.”
Most Zimbabweans have expressed disappointment that the constitution-making process is taking too long and ultimately preventing the much-needed elections even though the inclusive government has failed to address any meaningful development.
