President Mugabe Opens Parliament For Last Session Before 2018 General Election.

Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe is more than set to open the fifth and last session of the Eighth Parliament in a joint sitting of the National Assembly and Senate at Parliament Building today.

This fifth session will be the last before the country goes for the 2018 general election, the election whose date is yet to be fixed.


President Mugabe is expected to set out the legislative agenda for the session, which is expected to mainly anchor on improving the business conditions in the country and re-aligning laws with the new constitution.
As per tradition, during the official opening ceremony, the Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces will inspect a guard of honour presented by members of the Zimbabwe National Army before the president delivers his address to outline the legislative agenda.

Ahead of the 2018 elections, campaigns have started for various political seats.

Zimbabwe’s electoral authority is set to begin registering voters on 14 September, a process that is scheduled to run until 15 January.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission will use Biometric Voter Registration schemes to register the voters. This is the first time Zimbabwe is using this method of registering voters
