Zimbabwe Election Support Network (ZESN) yesterday applauded the move taken by ZEC on the review of the positioning of voting booths in a statement released .
The proposed positioning which would have seen voters casting their ballots in full view of the polling officers,political party agents and observers was a threat to the secrecy of the vote according to ZESN.
The initial proposed positioning of the booths which was meant to deter voters from taking photographs of their serial numbers of their papers was met with contempt by various electoral stakeholders.
“We are pleased that ZEC has taken the crucial step which we believe is essential to safeguarding the secrecy of the vote.It is imperative now for the commission and other institutions suporting democracy to ensure that the political environment outside polling stations is devoid of intimidation and harassment of voters before and after voting,” said ZESN chairperson Andrew Makoni.
