EU: Zimbabwe Election Unfair - 2002-03-13


European Union officials have issued a preliminary report saying Zimbabwe's presidential election has not been fair.

Austrian Foreign Minister Benita Ferrero Waldner announced Monday that EU envoys in Zimbabwe report that voters did not have sufficient access to polling places.

She also said that the envoys reported there was insufficient monitoring at the voting stations.

Last month, the European Union pulled its election monitors out of Zimbabwe and imposed a travel ban on President Mugabe due to increasing political violence and interference with the observers.

Foreign Minister Ferraro-Waldner said the final election developments from Zimbabwe will be reviewed on Friday and Saturday when EU officials meet in Barcelona, Spain.
