MUGABE SEEKS TO DELAY POLLS

0

HARARE: Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has filed an urgent application with the country’s top court to push back crucial elections by two weeks, his justice minister said on Wednesday. Justice Minister Patrick Chinamasa told Agence France-Presse he had filed papers on Tuesday that sought “a postponement of the date for the harmonized elections from July 31 to August 14, 2013.” The announcement comes just days after Southern African leaders pressed Mugabe to delay the polls to allow more time for democratic reforms.
