South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Ms Lindiwe Sisulu says SADC's secretariat is convinced that there is a conducive political and legislative environment in place to hold the upcoming July 30 harmonised elections.
Ms Sisulu said President Emmerson Mnangagwa has committed to uphold SADC Principles and Guidelines Governing Democratic Elections adopted by SADC in 2004 and revised in 2014.
She added that the guidelines are an important initiative that commits regional governments to credible, democratic and peaceful elections.
Ms Sisulu hailed Zimbabwe for extending invitations to over 40 countries to be observers in the elections including member states of the SADC countries, European Union and United States.
