Surveys point to ED victory
“Most people, 95 percent, said they were ‘fairly’ or ‘very’ satisfied with their experiences with biometric voter registration centres, including the conduct of registration officials and the functioning of registration equipment. “A slim majority, 53 percent of Zimbabweans believe that the Zec is a neutral board, while 31 percent think it makes decisions that favour particular people, parties, or interests. About 46 percent of Zimbabweans say they trust the Zec,” said Mr Ndoma.
He added that most Zimbabweans were registered and ready to vote next month, with more than eight in 10 Zimbabweans confirming that they were registered.
“As of late early May, more than eight in 10 Zimbabweans said they were registered and likely to vote in the July elections. Among voters willing to declare their preferences in the presidential race, the Zanu-PF held a 42 percent to 31 percent lead over the MDC-T.
“When citizens were asked which party’s candidate they expected to win the presidential election, 44 percent said Zanu-PF, while 28 percent said MDC-T Chamisa and two percent said MDC Alliance would win. About one in four said they didn’t know, refused to answer, or said the election was too close to call,” said Mr Ndoma.
Last week, a survey conducted by the Pan African Forum Limited revealed that Cde Mnangagwa will garner 70 percent of the vote against Mr Chamisa’s 24 percent. The Kenya-based network of African scholars conducted the poll whose results showed that President Mnangagwa is the people’s favourite and so is his party Zanu-PF. — @pamelashumba1 @tshuma584
