Mugabe Asks for Recount; Opposition Asks for Original Count to Be Released
|Seriously though, isn't it customary to know what the results are before you ask for a re-count? |
If this doesn't prove that Mugabe lost, nothing will (short of, say, the actual vote tallies, of course).
Meanwhile, the MDC is going to court to attempt to force the Zimbabwe Election Commission to release the results of the presidential poll.
This is interesting. Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has offered aid to Zimbabwe if the results of the election are fair.
I like Rudd. I saw him give a talk on China at the Brookings Institute when he was still "Shadow" Prime Minister. Unfortunately, if Mugabe or ZANU-PF cared about the quality of life in Zimbabwe (for anyone other than themselves), they would have shown it by now. They certainly will not give up their grip on power to prove it.
