HARARE, Zimbabwe's ruling party, Zanu PF, is start preparing for the 2018 general election soon with a focus on educating its members on the new biometric voter registration (BVR) system and the polling station- based voting system which will be used during the forthcoming polls, the party says.

Zimbabweans will elect their president and members of Parliament in the polls which are expected to be held before August next year when the tenure of the current Parliament expires.

Zanu PF Secretary for Administration Dr Ignatious Chombo said Wednesday on the sidelines of the party's 310th Politburo session that President Robert Mugabe had told members that the party must start preparing for the elections.

President Mugabe stated that preparations should start now in earnest. This, he emphasised, should start with the party being united and by organizing its members to register as voters, Dr Chombo said. Members need to be educated on the new biometric voter registration system and polling station-based voting system.

The country's election management body, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, will soon start compiling a new electoral roll using the recently adopted BVR system.

The ZEC has said voting for the 2018 polls would be conducted using a polling station-based system where specific voters are allocated a particular polling station within a five-kilometre radius from their place of residence.
