Zimbabwe opposition chief to stand in run-off vote

Text size Aa Aa

Zimbabwean opposition leader Morgan Tsvangarai has said he will stand in a run-off presidential election but only if it is monitored by international observers and foreign media. He beat President Robert Mugabe in the first vote, according to the official result, but not by enough to win outright. Tsvangarai claims the outcome was rigged and has accused the president’s supporters of trying to do the same with the coming ballot. A date has not yet been set for the election.
