Presidential run-off within three weeks

Zimbabwe could be heading for a presidential run-off within three weeks, according to the state-owned Herald newspaper.

The first official indication of the result of Saturday’s election says that neither President Robert Mugabe nor his main challenger gained 50% of the vote. Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai said his party would issue its own results if the commission did not. He says he won the poll but denies discussing Mr. Mugabe’s departure.

Mr. Tsvangirai said he would not claim victory until the official count was known and added that no negotiations would take place until such time.
What is three weeks to all the decades of waiting?
