The European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) to the Republic of Zimbabwe presented today its Final Report on the 30 July 2018 harmonised elections at a press conference in Harare. The report is being presented on behalf of Chief Observer Elmar Brok, Member of the European Parliament, to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC), the government, the parliament, civil society and political parties, among others. 

All observers of the EU Election Observation Mission are bound by a strict Code of Conduct that ensures their neutrality and impartiality during their work.

We, the International Election Observer Missions present for the 30 July Harmonised Elections in Zimbabwe, while appreciating the generally peaceful and orderly pre-electoral environment and on voting day, express our grave concern about the regrettable outbreaks of post-election violence.

Statement by the Spokesperson on the elections in Zimbabwe

Languages:

Improved political climate, inclusive participation rights and a peaceful vote, but un-level playing field, intimidation of voters and lack of trust in the process undermined the pre-election environment. We now hope for a transparent and traceable results process

Improved political climate, inclusive participation rights and a peaceful vote, but un-level playing field, intimidation of voters and lack of trust in the process undermined the pre-election environment. This is how the EUEOM Chief Observer Elmar Brok, Member of the European Parliament, characterized the electoral process up to now. “These elections were seen as a critical test of Zimbabwe’s reform process. In some senses, up to this point, the conduct of the polls has had a number of positive features, but in other senses serious concerns remain. Now we hope for a transparent results process”, said Mr. Brok.

The European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) to the Republic of Zimbabwe deployed today 44 short-term observers throughout the country. The group is the third contingent, following the core team and the 44 long-term observers, which have arrived in Zimbabwe on 6 June.
