By-elections were called after MDC-T fired 21 MPs aligned to MDC-Renewal Team. Only 14 seats would be contested as the rest were allocated through proportional representation.

THE main opposition MDC-T’s national executive committee and national council in April endorsed the party’s position to boycott the June 10 by-elections.

Political analysts argue that MDC-T failure to contest in the elections will open hitherto opposition spaces to Zanu PF particularly seats in Harare and Bulawayo.
