HARARE: Some minority political opposition parties have since chickened out of the 2018 General Elections citing an unlevel playing field as they lost a Constitutional Court application seeking to be given Political Parties Funding.

That is the case with the Zimbabwe Development Party (ZDP) led by Kisinoti Mukwazhi as well as the Voice of the People (VOP) led by Moreprecision Muzadzi.

Political Parties Funding is only given to parties with elected MPs.

Only Zanu PF and MDC-T were given funds for 2018 elections.
