ZIMBABWE Electoral Commission (ZEC) has given opposition MDC Alliance the greenlight to attend its provincial meetings, has learnt.

The Nelson Chamisa-led outfit had been barred from attending the provincial consultative meetings.

The decision to allow it comes after a week of drama where a letter from within ZEC seeking clarification on how to deal with MDC Alliance was leaked and two activists arrested for protesting the exclusion.

Speaking at a Change Radio function in Harare, Saturday, party vice president Lynette Karenyi-Kore confirmed this.

"We would like to applaud the efforts of Denford Ngadziore and the entire Youth Assembly who fought hard against this injustice," said Karenyi-Kore.

"ZEC has finally communicated and allowed us to attend provincial consultative meetings."

Ngadziore was arrested, Thursday, alongside activist Chrispen Bvirwa while attempting to forcibly attend the second consecutive consultative meeting in protest.

ZEC has since its inception been accused of being under Zanu-PF control.
