Zimbabwe Electoral Commission chairperson Justice Priscilla Chigumba says candidates who are contesting in the by elections, set for the 26th of March, are free to immediately lodge their nomination papers ahead of the sitting of the nomination court. 

Addressing the media in Victoria Falls on Thursday , Justice Chigumba said registering before the 26th of this month will assist in decongesting the courts on that day.

Meanwhile, Justice Chigumba said only those that registered to vote on or before the 8th of this month, will be allowed to cast their votes in the by-elections that President Mnangagwa proclaimed recently.  

Voter registration however remains open for future elections.
