Zimbabwe Election Results Still Guarded
Update: Developments continue.
Zimbabwe's main opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, has accused President Robert Mugabe of preparing to go to war against the country's people.
He said Mr Mugabe was deploying troops and armed militias to intimidate voters ahead of a possible run-off poll.
Mr Tsvangirai insisted he had won last weekend's presidential vote, the result of which has yet to be announced.
He called on Mr Mugabe to enter a dialogue to prepare for a peaceful, democratic transition.
Saturday also saw election officials declare the final results of the Senate vote.
The Zimbabwe Election Commission (ZEC) said Mr Mugabe's Zanu-PF party had won 30 seats, with the combined opposition taking the same number.
In the lower house, opposition parties took 109 seats, while Zanu-PF won just 97 - the first time it has failed to win a majority since independence from Britain in 1980. Zanu-PF has said it will demand recounts in 16 seats.
A Zimbabwe court postponed a legal bid by the opposition to force the release of presidential election results on Saturday, after the electoral commission asked for more time to prepare its response.
Earlier, armed police briefly prevented lawyers from the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) from entering the High Court, although they were later allowed in.
The opposition believes a long delay in issuing results from the election a week ago masks attempts by President Robert Mugabe to buy time for a fightback.
His ruling Zanu-PF party lost control of Parliament in the election for the first time in his 28-year rule.
Zimbabwe's main opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, has said he is the clear winner of the presidential poll and there is no need for a run-off.
He also accused President Robert Mugabe, who has held power since 1980, of preparing to go to war against the country's people.
Mr Mugabe's Zanu-PF party has backed him to contest any run-off poll, amid growing fears of political violence.
