MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has said that the electoral reforms that the MDC is demanding are purely administrative and not parliamentary in nature. Addressing thousands of supporters at the Africa Unity Square protest demanding electoral reforms, Chamisa said,
We have already won the election and Mnangagwa knows that we will beat him in free and fair election, especially in rural areas because people have now awoken.
We know there is a baboon which wants to reap where it did not sow. We are setting a trap for the baboon; we want reforms now because they are not parliamentary but administrative and require political will to resolve such issue…We need an independent audit of the BVR registration and if I lose fairly, I should be able to congratulate the winner; but I know that I can’t congratulate myself so Mnangagwa must congratulate me.
