HARARE (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.
