                Notice of March 3, 2009

                
Continuation of the National Emergency with 
                Respect to Zimbabwe

                On March 6, 2003, by Executive Order 13288, the 
                President declared a national emergency and blocked 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). He 
                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. These actions have 
                contributed to the deliberate breakdown in the rule of 
                law in Zimbabwe, to politically motivated violence and 
                intimidation, and to political and economic instability 
                in the southern African region.

                On November 22, 2005, the President issued Executive 
                Order 13391 to take additional steps with respect to 
                the national emergency declared in Executive Order 
                13288 by ordering the blocking of the property of 
                additional persons undermining democratic processes or 
                institutions in Zimbabwe.

                On July 25, 2008, the President issued Executive Order 
                13469, which expanded the scope of the national 
                emergency declared in Executive Order 13288 and ordered 
                the blocking of the property of additional persons 
                undermining democratic processes or institutions in 
                Zimbabwe.

                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, on November 22, 2005, and on July 
                25, 2008, to deal with that emergency, must continue in 
                effect beyond March 6, 2009. 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 with respect to the actions and 
                policies of certain members of the Government of 
                Zimbabwe and other persons to undermine Zimbabwe's 
                democratic processes or institutions.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    March 3, 2009.
