Zimbabweans Demand Accountability in Governance, Doubt Efficacy of Elections

"Demand for accountability in governance is solid among Zimbabweans, even if ensuring accountability requires slower government processes. Citizens clearly assign Parliament responsibility for making laws and for holding the president accountable for how taxpayer money is spent. Citizens also task the judiciary and the news media with holding the government accountable. Only pluralities assign responsibility for holding public officials accountable to the voters, and most Zimbabweans do not believe that their country’s elections are performing well as a mechanism for removing non-performing leaders from office."
