Zimbabwe opposition on deadline to appeal election result

MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa Zimbabwe opposition file presidential poll challenge

"The inauguration is no longer going ahead (on Sunday) as planned", Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi told AFP.

The Constitutional Court has 14 days from the day the presidential challenge is lodged to render a decision.

The Constitutional Court, which can declare a new victor or order a fresh election, must rule within 14 days of an election petition.

"Our legal team successfully filed our court papers".

"Zanu-PF has assembled a 12-member legal team to prepare responses to the unwarranted litigation being threatened by the MDC-Alliance leader Chamisa challenging the validity of the presidential vote", Chinamasa said.

Worldwide monitors largely praised the conduct of the election itself, although European Union observers said that Mnangagwa, a former ally of Mugabe, benefited from an "un-level playing field" and a degree of voter intimidation.

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has accused the ruling ZANU-PF party and the election commission of ballot fraud in the July 30 vote, Zimbabwe's first poll since the ousting of Mugabe in November.

"At the moment, we are not moving forward because according to the Constitution we should wait for seven days after declaration of the results so that if there is anyone who wants to appeal against the results, they do so", President Mnangagwa said. The opposition said the result was rigged. Six died after soldiers opened fire on the protesters in a response the opposition alliance called "disproportionate and unjustified".

He faces charges of inciting the protests last week by proclaiming victory for the opposition. We call on Zimbabwe's leaders to guarantee Mr. Biti's physical safety and ensure his constitutional and human rights are respected, consistent with the rule of law and Zimbabwe's global obligations and commitments.

They said they were "deeply disturbed by continuing reports that opposition supporters are being targeted by members of the Zimbabwean security forces".

Zimbabwe remains in political limbo.
