Zimbabwe's Future

EDM number 594 in 2017-19, proposed by Hugh Gaffney on 27/11/2017.
Categorised under the topics of International politics and government and Zimbabwe.

That this House welcomes the end of Robert Mugabe's tenure as President of Zimbabwe; recognises the desperate situation many Zimbabweans find themselves in following a decade, and more, of bad government, a blatant disregard for democracy and the rule of law, and very serious policy failures; cautiously welcomes President Mnangagwa to his position as the third President of Zimbabwe; acknowledges the unity government announced by the new President; calls on President Mnangagwa to immediately work towards free and fair elections in the summer of July 2018; dedicates itself to continued support for the Zimbabwean diaspora across the UK; calls on the African Union, the South African Development Community and the UN to play their role in the restoration of democracy to Zimbabwe; and pledges to stand by the new government and the people of Zimbabwe, both in that country and in the diaspora, as they move toward a free, fair and democratic future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 53 MPs.
