ZIMBABWE: ELECTION DATE

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY MASILO MABETA, MP
SPOKESPERSON FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS

The UDM welcomes the announcement of the election in Zimbabwe for 24 and 25 June 2000.

We call on all role-players in Zimbabwe, and members of the SADC region, to do everything in their power to ensure that the election is free and fair. This should now be the primary goal for all of us, since its achievement can be the first step in returning Zimbabwe to stability. A successful election will set Zimbabwe on the road to political and economic recovery where law and order prevail, and restore the pride and dignity of the Southern African region.
