about one million more people added to Zimbabwe polls

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission said a total of 5,934,768 voters had registered to vote in the 29 March polls, compared to the five million who took part in the 2005 election. Registration for the poll, in which voters would be electing a new president and parliamentary and local representatives, closed 14 February amid opposition demands for an extension which was ignored. Meanwhile, the electoral commission said a total of 8,998 polling centres had been established across the country.
