Zimbabwe names date for run-off


The second-round run-off in Zimbabwe’s disputed presidential election will be held on 27 June, the government says.

Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai won the first round, but not by enough to avoid a run-off. President Robert Mugabe said the poll was “disastrous”.

Mr Tsvangirai says he will contest the second round, after originally threatening to boycott it.

He has accused Mr Mugabe’s party of vote-rigging and a campaign of violence against opposition activists.
