Elections 2023 Webinar Series Policy Brief No. 5 Organised Violence and Torture and Elections in 2023: Can the Citizens be Insulated from this?

Insulation deals with both the right to register and vote and the right to freely participate in all pre-election activities. This policy dialogue focused on the latter and the concern over interference with the rights to participate and vote, with Organised Violence and Torture (OVT) as the most serious form of interference. This has been raised in previous policy dialogues over the past few years, and it should be noted that the concerns are based on multiple reports about/ OVT in Zimbabwean elections, many of which are included in nearly 500 reports on OVT since 2000.
