Zimbabwe's first presidential and parliamentary elections since the end of former strongman Robert Mugabe's long rule will take place in July, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Saturday.

The polls will be the first major test of the new leader, who took power in November after a de facto military coup forced the 94-year-old Mugabe to resign.

They will also be the first without Mugabe's name on the ballot since independence from Britain in 1980.

“As a nation, party and government, we are looking forward to very peaceful, transparent and harmonised elections in July this year,” Mr. Mnangagwa told reporters after a meeting with South Africans President Cyril Ramaphosa on Saturday night.

Mr. Mnangagwa, 75, said the elections would be free of the violence that gripped previous polls and which was one of the reasons for strained relations between Zimbabwe and the West.

“I have already invited all political parties in Zimbabwe to a roundtable where we all commit ourselves to non-violence,” he added.

Mr. Mnanaggwa will have to announce a date in an official notice. He has said he would invite Western observers, who had been banned under Mugabe's rule.

The State-owned weekly Sunday Mail said a European Union pre-election team was expectewd in Harare on Monday.

The EU head of mission in Zimbabwe, Phillipe Van Damme, told the paper it would meet the President, political party leaders, and the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.





   




Mugabe, in his first comments since he stepped down, said last week that Mr. Mnangagwa's rule was “illegitimate” and a “disgrace”.
