MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai was meeting on Saturday with his top officials and was expected to announce his party’s withdrawal from Zimbabwe’s disputed election.
Tsvangirai has described the election as a farce and the party ordered its election agents to withdraw from vote counting centres on Friday.
“I am meeting the MDC-T National Executive Committee and then members of the National Council, which is the party’s supreme decision-making body outside Congress. Top of the agenda will be the stolen elections,” Tsvangirai said.
On Friday, the party’s treasurer-general Roy Bennett urged Zimbabweans to embark on a campaign of peaceful resistance, including strikes.
The MDC-T has produced damning evidence proving that the election was rigged through manipulation of the voters roll by Tobaiwa Mudede and the Israeli firm Nikuv International Projects. The Rita Makarau-led Zimbabwe Electoral Commission bungled voter registration, refusing to register non-residents, leaving two million potential voters unregistered and turning away a million registered voters on Wednesday.
