HARARE-- Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa's lawyers have filed papers at the Constitutional Court here opposing an application by the country's biggest opposition party, MDC Alliance

Incumbent President Mnangagwa of the ruling Zanu PF party was declared winner of the polls, having garnered 50.8 per cent of the vote against 44.3 per cent polled by the MDC Alliance candidate, Nelson Chamisa.

Chamisa, however, claims he won the poll, and accused the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) of manipulating the final tally to favour the incumbent.

In the opposing court papers, President Mnangagwa's lawyers argue that the poll was conducted in a free and fair environment, with the outcome reflecting the will of the people of Zimbabwe.

Lead lawyer Lewis Uriri said here Wednesday they were confident the opposition would lose the case as they did not have evidence to back their claims.

They should bring that evidence, they ought to have brought that evidence at the time they filed the application. They did not bring it because it does not exist.

Chamisa's lawyers filed their application in which they seek to have the results of the poll as announced by ZEC declared null and void, last Friday. The opposition is seeking that the Constitutional Court declares

Chamisa the winner of the poll or alternatively order fresh elections to be held.
