MDC President Nelson Chamisa has accused the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) of attempts to rig the 2023 election through manipulating constituency boundaries in favour of Zanu-PF.

Speaking at the launch of his party's 20 Principle for Reliable Inclusive and Credible Elections in Zimbabwe (PRICE) in Harare Thursday, Chamisa said ZEC was manipulating new electoral boundaries in areas where it has been recorded that Zanu-PF was no longer popular with the electorate.

"We will not proceed to accept the delimitation process by ZEC," Chamisa told delegates who included diplomats and senior MDC officials.

"It is a gerrymandering process disguised as delimitation. They want to do anything under the cover of darkness and that will create problems for the country. There is no clarity on the delimitation," he said.

Chamisa questioned why ZEC was carrying out the delimitation process before a national population census is done, something that has been the tradition in past elections.
