Elections in Zimbabwe


The Norwegian Council for Africa invites you to

Lunch seminar 30. March 12:00-14:00 on:

Elections in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe holds national elections on 31 March. In the 2000 elections, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) emerged as a serious challenge to the ruling Zanu-PF. During the last five years, the government has responded to this challenge with direct and indirect oppression of the opposition. It is expected that Zanu-PF will win again – and that the SADC observers will approve of the elections.

* Is there any real political opportunity for the opposition in these elections?

* How will the opposition and civil society respond to five more years of Zanu-PF rule?

* What strategies for change are possible in Zimbabwe after the elections?

* Will the outcome of the elections affect Norway and Norwegian NGO’s work and policies towards Zimbabwe?
