The MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has been advised to stick it out in its quest to form an alternative administration at the forthcoming polls in spite of the existence of an uneven electoral playing field tilted in favour of the ruling party.

Meanwhile, the MDC Alliance on Tuesday said it had received a copy of the voters' roll for the July 30 harmonised elections, but immediately demanded photographs of all registered voters to conduct an audit through door-to-door visits.

In a bid to cast aspersions on the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) and undermine the credibility of the polls, MDC-T faction leader Mr Nelson Chamisa, who leads a coalition of seven fringe political parties, insisted the voters' roll was not final.

MDC-T national deputy treasurer Mr Charlton Hwende said they wanted a voters' roll with pictures, a request described by observers as an intimidation tactic. ZEC yesterday said the voters' roll contained adequate information.

Photographs, ZEC commissioner Dr Qhubani Moyo said, would be used by the electoral body on election day for identification purposes.
