PRIME Minister Morgan Tsvangirai says he is pushing for national elections
to be held in March 2013, setting the stage for what could be a bitter
showdown with President Robert Mugabe.

The MDC-T leader told a local weekly newspaper that although the process of
writing a new constitution is still under way, elections will be possible
less than a year from now.
“It’s just not possible to hold elections this year, there is no
constitution and no referendum has been held,” he said.

“Elections will be held at the outer limit; that is in March 2013 when the
current term of the lawmakers would have constitutionally expired.”
However, President Robert Mugabe called for “violence-free” elections before
the year is out.

Although Mugabe’s ruling Zanu PF party passed a resolution in December
calling for elections to be held in 2012, Tsvangirai stressed the country is
not ready yet.

He however, said the constitution is coming along, telling the newspaper,
“There is still a lot of work to be done and we need to flatten the
political space that at present is dominated by Zanu PF.”
