Mugabe’s election

A final day of campaigning has begun in Zimbabwe‘s general election, amid opposition fears of widespread vote-rigging in Saturday’s poll.

The two main rivals to President Robert Mugabe, Morgan Tsvangirai and Simba Makoni, have said there are severe discrepancies in voter lists. Mr. Mugabe insists the vote is fair and everyone should abide by the results.

There have been few reliable opinion polls. A candidate must win 50% of the presidential vote to avoid a run-off.
