Zanu-PF backs Mugabe

Zimbabwe‘s ruling Zanu-PF party has given its backing to President Robert Mugabe’s participation in a possible run-off vote.


The party’s top leaders met to decide how to react to election results that have yet to be announced, six days after the presidential poll. The opposition MDC claims its leader received enough votes to win outright.

There had been speculation that Mr. Mugabe would stand aside rather than face a second poll. The elections also saw the ruling party lose its majority in parliament for the first time since independence in 1980. The MDC (Movement for Democratic Change) says it intends to ask the High Court to order the immediate release of results of the presidential poll.

It says its candidate, Morgan Tsvangirai, took 50.3% of the vote. An independent projection says Mr. Tsvangirai gained 49%, just below the threshold, with Mr. Mugabe on 42%.

Why I’m not surprised? They stole, killed, tortured and raped for so long with Mugabe that they cannot change him now!
