The exercise will begin soon after the new constitution bill is signed by President Mugabe and gazetted into law.

Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader Welshman Ncube says Zimbabweans should take advantage of the up-coming thirty-day voter registration exercise to ensure their names are on the voters roll as the country prepares for fresh elections.

The exercise will begin soon after the Zimbabwe Constitution Amendment Bill Number 20 is signed by President Robert Mugabe and gazetted into law.

Ncube said the on-going mobile voter registration exercise has been ineffective.

The MDC leader was addressing the party’s aspiring council and parliamentary candidates in Chikomba West in Chivhu district Friday afternoon, as part of the party’s preparations for the oncoming elections.

Ncube told VOA elections can only be held in August or September this year, and not earlier as President Mugabe has indicated.

He added the new constitution, and even the old one, stipulate that the president and the cabinet can continue working after parliament is dissolved, until a new government is set-up.
