The MDC Alliance has launched the Plan and Environment and Credible Election (PEACE) In Zimbabwe Document.
The PEACE Document according to a statement released by MDC-T presidential spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka, is a comprehensive list of 10 demands that would ensure a free, fair and credible election in Zimbabwe. Part of the statement by Tamborinyoka reads:
The Alliance leadership outlined the 10 demands in the MDC Alliance’s PEACE in Zimbabwe document, which he said the Alliance wanted responded to ahead of the next election.
The issues include but are not limited to the role of the military in Zimbabwe’s elections, the independence of ZEC, 40 percent of whose secretariat are either serving or retired members of the military, impartiality and free and equal coverage of all contesting parties by the public broadcaster, legislative reforms covering the Electoral Act, the Public Order and Security Act as well as the Access to Information and Privacy Act, which he said proscribed fundamental freedoms of speech and assembly. He (Chamisa) also spoke about the need for all contesting parties to audit the voters roll and the need to stem violence and intimidation so that the sovereign expression of the people is not curtailed.
