Title   Election update 2005 Zimbabwe no.3

Serial Election update 2005 Zimbabwe; Nr.3
Abstract Although the fairness of an election is unlikely to be determined solely by reference to what happens on the Election Day, the actual process of balloting deserves particular attention. Because of the relatively peaceful and non violent manner in which the elections were held, the 2005 Parliamentary elections can be said to be free but because of the gerrymandering of constituencies; the voterís roll which is in shambles; the discrepancies in the announcement of voters as well as the appointment of 30 Members of Parliament by the President, the election cannot be said to be fair.
