Paving way for disability inclusive elections

http://www.zw.undp.org January 04, 2019

Through the support of ZIM-ECO Project, Zimbabwe Election Commission (ZEC) commemorated the International Day of Disabled persons by engaging with Disabled People Organizations (DPOs). Participation of the People with Disabilities (PWDs) in the electoral process was discussed in depth, including the issues, challenges and constraints faced when exercising their democratic right.

ZEC and DPOs committed to undertake mobilisation efforts to register PWDs, and to further deepen the engagement in coming years.
