President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s legal team have successfully filed their opposing papers to Nelson Chamisa’s challenge of the presidential results at the Constitutional Court.

Zanu PF and the legal representative team for President-elect Emmerson Mnangagwa have successfully filed opposing papers challenging the application lodged by the MDC Alliance.

Advocate Lewis Uriri the lead counsel for the respondents said the application by the MDC Alliance was devoid of merit and pure political grandstanding as it failed to attack the results contained in the V11 forms which all political parties are in possession of.

Zanu PF Secretary for Legal Affairs Cde Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana also said they are quite confident that the application by the MDC Alliance would be thrown out for lack of merit and the President-elect will duly be inaugurated after the court process.

The registrar is yet to set down the matter for hearing before a full Constitutional Court bench.
