EU Presidency Statement on Zimbabwe

The Presidency of the European Union takes note of the announcement of the result of the presidential election that took place on 29 March.

The Presidency reiterates its call for an immediate end of violence, intimidation, and human rights abuses against Zimbabweans and expresses its concern over increasing number of reports on state sponsored actions since polling day.

Nearly five weeks' delay of the announcement as well as post-election violence has raised serious concerns about the credibility of the process. The Presidency wishes to emphasise that for any second round of the Presidential election to be considered free and fair and to be a credible reflection of the free and democratic will of the Zimbabwean people, end of violence as well as presence of the international observers is of crucial importance.
