ZIMBABWE: Zanu PF party is today expected to file opposing papers at the Constitutional Court against a petition filed by MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa last Friday challenging incumbent president Emmerson Mnangagwa’s victory in the poll held July 30.
Mangwana said Zanu PF’s 12-member legal team would file its response this morning.
He said they want the Constitutional Court to dismiss the petition on the basis that the MDC Alliance did not properly serve the papers at the president’s address.
However, some legal experts told Report Focus News Zimbabwe Service the court’s rules and regulations clearly stipulate that such petition can be delivered directly or indirectly to respondents.
Mangwana said the “late filing” of the papers by Chamisa’s lawyers, which he said were also sent to the wrong address, will be raised before the bench.
Zanu PF Central Committee member, Believe Gaule, said the case should be dismissed as the MDC Alliance did not follow some court regulations.
