Head of Zimbabwe election commission quits, source says

HARARE, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Zimbabwe Electoral Commission chairwoman Rita Makarau has resigned, months before a vote whose credibility is crucial to the new army-backed government’s efforts to re-engage international lenders and lure investors, a senior government source said on Friday.

Makarau, seen as an ally of former president Robert Mugabe, gave no reason for her resignation, the official, who declined to be named, said. (Reporting by Emelia Sithole-Matarise; Editing by Ed Cropley)
