Aspiring candidates sue govt over suspension of by-elections (New Zimbabwe.com)
A group of aspiring candidates have approached the High Court seeking a declaratory order to the effect that the suspending of by-lections in Zimbabwe was unconstitutional.
The aspiring candidates are Ellah Tayengwa (Kuwadzana East constituency), Moud Chinyerere (Highfield West), Agnes Togarepi (Highfield West), Gracious Matsunga (Mufakose), David Gwanzura (Glen View South Ward 31) and Loice Gwangwara of Marondera Central constituency.
They are being represented by Harare lawyer and MDC Alliance politician Tendai Biti.
The candidates are being joined in the litigation process by two organisations, Women’s academy for leadership and political excellence (WALPE) and Election Resource Centre Trust.
