The Zimbabwean opposition has announced it will not take part in a presidential runoff, assuming there is one.
This is hardly a surprise, given (relatively) independent claims that the opposition candidate, Morgan Tsvangarai, actually won outright in the first round. Even if, as other independent sources suggest, Tsvangarai came up just short of 50%, it is difficult to plan for a runoff when the electoral commission has not even released “cooked” results of the first round (on 29 March).
Smart move? Dumb move? We do not talk much about election boycotts here at F&V.
