Zimbabwean voters cast their votes in a polling station lit with candles and gas lamps in Waterfalls, a suburb of Harare, on March 16, 2013, during a referendum on a new constitution that would curb President Robert Mugabe’s powers and pave the way for elections later in the year. The country’s main political parties, including Mugabe’s long ruling ZANU-PF, are in favor of the proposed changes to the law, making the simple majority needed for a “yes” vote a near certainty.
