Zimbabwe Opposition Leader Accuses Court of Electoral Bias
Leader of Zimbabwe's opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) says the country’s Constitutional Court is playing politics with important electoral issues. Zimbabwe was scheduled to hold elections in July or August. The MDC had asked the court to postpone the election because it said the Electoral Commission’s constituency boundary report did not take into consideration the results of last year’s census which have yet to be published. But the court said the party’s application did not discuss the costs of postponement. MDC leader Douglas Mwonzora tells VOA’s James Butty, the court ruling is politically motivated, and that the MDC plans to petition the Supreme Court and take its complaints to the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
