Zimbabwe's main opposition party is claiming victory in the country's general elections as electoral officials continue a slow release of results from Saturday's election. The latest results from Zimbabwe's Electoral Commission today showed that the ruling ZANU-PF party and the opposition Movement for Democratic Change, each winning about 19 parliamentary seats out of a total of 210. No presidential results have been announced yet nearly 48 hours after the end of voting. Peta Thornycroft has more from Harare.

 

Some independent election officials say the delay in announcing the results was unnecessary and as a result the electorate is questioning the process. In previous elections, announcements were immediately released to national radio and television for broadcast. The same officials say the delay has led to tension in urban areas. Riot police moved into deserted Harare Sunday night about 6 hours before the first results were announced. The head of the Zimbabwe Election Commission, George Chiweshe, told reporters clamoring for results that the tabulation process was taking much longer than in the past because four elections took place simultaneously. "I don't know. These are four elections. If you have else four election before." In a balloting that was largely peaceful Saturday voters chose a president, national assembly, senate and local council. Peta Thornycroft for VOA News, Harare.

 

President Bush is headed to Europe for a NATO summit to push allies for more military support in Afghanistan. He also meets later this week with Russia's President Vladimir Putin for talks on NATO expansion and US plans for a missile defense shield in Europe. Before the NATO summit which opens Wednesday in Romania, Mr. Bush will visit Ukraine for talks with President Viktor Yushchenko on expanding NATO membership to include both Ukraine and Georgia. 

 

Rockets have struck Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone where there have been no reports of fatalities from today's attack which hit the compound housing the Iraqi government and the US Embassy. The attack came a day after radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr called a ceasefire with Iraqi and coalition troops. Despite the violence, a citywide curfew was lifted today. Businesses opened for the first time since al-Sadr's militants began fighting Iraqi and coalition forces nearly a week ago. Iraqi lawmakers say Iranian officials helped broker the truce with al-Sadr's group Sunday.

 

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has called on Israel to stop expanding its settlements following an announcement that Israel is planning to build at least 600 new homes in the contested area in the West Bank.

Zimbabwe s main opposition party is claiming victory in the country's general elections as electoral officials continue a slow release of results from Saturday's election. The latest results from Zimbabwe's Electoral Commission today showed that the ruling ZANU-PF party and the opposition Movement for Democratic Change, each winning about 19 parliamentary seats out of a total of 210. No presidential results have been announced yet nearly 48 hours after the end of voting. Peta Thornycroft has more from Harare.

 

Some independent election officials say the delay in announcing the results was unnecessary and as a result the electorate is questioning the process. In previous elections, announcements were immediately released to national radio and television for broadcast. The same officials say the delay has led to tension in urban areas. Riot police moved into deserted Harare Sunday night about 6 hours before the first results were announced. The head of the Zimbabwe Election Commission, George Chiweshe, told reporters clamoring for results that the tabulation process was taking much longer than in the past because four elections took place simultaneously. "I don't know. These are four elections. If you have else four election before. " In a balloting that was largely peaceful Saturday voters chose a president, national assembly, senate and local council. Peta Thornycroft for VOA News, Harare.

I strove with none, for none was worth my strife,
Nature I loved, and next to Nature, Art;
I warmed both hands before the fire of life,
It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
