Monitors warn on Zimbabwe ‘delay’

Election observers in Zimbabwe have expressed concerns over “delays” in announcing official presidential poll results, amid fears of rigging.


The head of one monitors’ group said he had “no doubt” officials now know most results. None have yet been released. Officials blamed the fact that four separate polls were held on one day.

The government and election chiefs have issued warnings to the opposition MDC after it said it had won on the basis of partial, unofficial results. Saturday’s election pitted the MDC’s Morgan Tsvangirai and the independent Simba Makoni against President Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe’s leader since 1980.

Mugabe need time to …cook the result!
