HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY ELECTION RESULTS


ARMED police prevented Zimbabwe opposition lawyers from entering the High Court to apply for an order forcing the release of presidential election results.

A Reuters correspondent on the scene said three police officers blocked Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) lawyers Alec Muchadehama and Andrew Makoni from entering the High Court building.

The MDC wants the High Court to order the electoral commission to release results from last Saturday's vote.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown will hold talks with President Thabo Mbeki today during which the post-election crisis in Zimbabwe is likely to be discussed, a spokesperson for Brown said.

"The prime minister will meet Mbeki this morning," the spokesperson said. Zimbabwe was likely to be on the agenda when the two leaders meet on the sidelines of a conference, he said.

Brown is hosting a "progressive governance" conference in Watford, just outside London, and Mbeki is one of the attendees.

Mbeki, along with other African and international leaders, is trying to find a solution to the crisis in Zimbabwe following last week's elections.

The opposition MDC says its leader Morgan Tsvangirai defeated Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe in the presidential election. Mugabe has signalled he wants to fight to extend his 28-year rule. - Reuters
