I took this action to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the United States constituted by the actions and policies of certain members of the Government of Zimbabwe and other persons to undermine Zimbabwe’s democratic processes or institutions, thus contributing to the deliberate breakdown in the rule of law in Zimbabwe, to politically motivated violence and intimidation in that country, and to political and economic instability in the southern African region. Because the actions and policies of these persons continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the United States, the national emergency declared on March 6, 2003, and the measures adopted on that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond March 6, 2005. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency blocking the property of persons undermining democratic processes or institutions in Zimbabwe.

                Notice of March 2, 2005

                
Continuation of the National Emergency Blocking 
                Property of Persons Undermining Democratic Processes or 
                Institutions in Zimbabwe

                On March 6, 2003, by Executive Order 13288, I declared 
                a national emergency blocking the property of persons 
                undermining democratic processes or institutions in 
                Zimbabwe, pursuant to the International Emergency 
                Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706). I took this 
                action to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the foreign policy of the United States 
                constituted by the actions and policies of certain 
                members of the Government of Zimbabwe and other persons 
                to undermine Zimbabwe's democratic processes or 
                institutions, thus contributing to the deliberate 
                breakdown in the rule of law in Zimbabwe, to 
                politically motivated violence and intimidation in that 
                country, and to political and economic instability in 
                the southern African region.

                Because the actions and policies of these persons 
                continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to 
                the foreign policy of the United States, the national 
                emergency declared on March 6, 2003, and the measures 
                adopted on that date to deal with that emergency, must 
                continue in effect beyond March 6, 2005. Therefore, in 
                accordance with section 202(d) of the National 
                Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing 
                for 1 year the national emergency blocking the property 
                of persons undermining democratic processes or 
                institutions in Zimbabwe.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.

                    (Presidential Sig.)B

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    March 2, 2005.
