Tsvangirai party says power-sharing talks have reached 'deadlock'

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2010-02-12

A spokesman for Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change said talks between rival factions of Zimbabwe's beleaguered power-sharing government had reached a "deadlock" and new elections may be necessary.

AFP - Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's party Friday called for fresh elections if the current deadlock in talks between rival factions of the frayed power-sharing government persisted.
   
"In our view it's a deadlock. We realise there is disenchantment among the people. The people would want to see finality to these issues. If the deadlock persists then our trajectory is to have free and fair elections," Nelson Chamisa, spokesman for the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), told journalists in Harare.
