Zimbabwe opposition mounts legal challenge against election result

Zimbabwe opposition file presidential poll challenge
"For now, it will stay pending until the court challenge determination".
Zimbabwean President elect Emmerson Mnangagwa's planned inauguration has been postponed indefinitely after the opposition filed a court challenge against the election.
Mr Mnangagwa won 50.8% of the vote compared with Mr Chamisa's 44.3%.
Chris Mhike, in suit, leads Nelson Chamisa's legal team into the Zimbabwean Constitutional Court to file their challenge to Emmerson Mnangagwa's electoral victory last week. If it does this successfully, the court could order a recount or nullify the result altogether.
We call on Zimbabwe's leaders to guarantee Mr. Biti's physical safety and ensure his constitutional and human rights are respected, consistent with the rule of law and Zimbabwe's worldwide obligations and commitments.
The court challenge automatically cancels Mnangagwa's inaugartaion which had been scheduled to go ahead on Sunday the 12th of August. We have a good case and cause!
The MDC must prove that any irregularities were grave enough to change the outcome of the vote.

The MDC reported that its foreign lawyers had initially been denied entry into the Constitutional Court on work permit grounds.
The conduct of the election was largely deemed sound by global monitors, but representatives of the European Union noted Mnangagwa benefited from an "un-level playing field" and some voter intimidation.
"In the alternative, we seek that there be another election which complies with the dictates of the law", Mpofu said.
The ruling party was quick to dismiss the bid.
Global monitors largely praised the conduct of the election itself, although European Union observers said that Mnangagwa, a former ally of Mugabe, benefited from an "un-level playing field" and a degree of voter intimidation.
"If [the judges] think the evidence is weak they could throw the case out fairly fast. But if they want to meet us in court we have sufficient legal minds to meet them squarely in court", ZANU-PF legal secretary Paul Mangwana said.
At least six people were killed in violence that erupted after the vote as security forces clashed with MDC supporters who alleged that Chamisa had been robbed of victory.
