The chance of a free and fair election in Zimbabwe is "good" if all the agreements reached as part of the political facilitation process are implemented, Foreign Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, said yesterday.
"If they implement the laws that parliament passed around security, information and media, and all those laws that the opposition wanted done and they all agreed [upon]," Dlamini-Zuma, pictured, said in response to a question at a press conference.
"All those things should be implemented now in the run-up and during the election - then the prospects should be good," she said, referring to agreements between President Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF party and factions of the opposition MDC as part of mediation effort by President Thabo Mbeki.
