The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) says it will guard jealously information on the voters roll and election results to enable credible elections.
This came out at a stakeholder engagement between ZEC and political parties in Harare today.
According to the commission, access to the server containing information on the voting process will be restricted to selected ZEC employees.
“The server is a security area and all political parties will not be allowed access it,” ZEC Chairperson, Justice Rita Makarau.
Concerns have been raised by political parties over accessibility and security of information during the forthcoming 2018 general elections.
Justice Makarau also revealed that the commission received all the outstanding biometric voter registration (BVR) kits and the blitz for registration will commence on the 12th of October.
The commission launched the voter registration exercise on September 18 and so far, a total of 25 571 people have been registered.
One BVR kit has a capacity to register between 80 to 100 people per day and the delivery of the outstanding 2600 kits will improve the smooth flow of the electoral process.
