ZANU-PF primary election reruns started on a low note yesterday, with ballot papers in most constituencies arriving late, a development that saw the polls extended to today.
In Mashonaland West, reruns were ordered in six constituencies namely Zvimba North, Zvimba South, Makonde, Chegutu West and Chegutu East.
Dispatching of ballot papers proved to be the stumbling block.
Most centres received the ballot papers late.
By midday ballot papers for the Zvimba North constituency had not arrived at the various polling centres and distribution started around 3 pm.
There was also confusion over constituency command centres.
In Zvimba North, Zanu-PF supporters in the constituency’s 17 party districts were still waiting for the ballot papers while some had already returned home after spending the day waiting to vote.
There are 14 candidates vying for the Zvimba North primaries including Cdes Farai Chiyangwa, Theresa Maburutse, Christopher Shumba, Miriam Bamhare, Dolly Tamanikwa, Rodwell Chitemerere, Joseph Kaundo, Marian Chombo, Goodluck G. Mbiri, Godmire Mufuka, Chamunorwa Chironda, Idah Kamushinda, Chionioni Pasipanodya and Wilbom M. Mehlomakulu.
The primary elections could not be held last time because of the late distribution of ballot papers.
