Zimbabwe opposition chief declines to claim victory
Zimbabwean opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai declined Tuesday to declare himself the winner of a presidential election, saying he would wait until an announcement from the electoral commission.

“I prefer to wait until as long as the ZEC (Zimbabwe Electoral Commission) confirms the results,” Tsvangirai told a press conference in his first public appearance since Saturday’s presidential and parliamentary elections.

Tsvangirai’s party has already said it is confident that he won the poll but the electoral commission, whose leadership is appointed by President Robert Mugabe, has yet to release any results from the presidential contest.
