Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is blocking the release of results that likely show a significant opposition victory in yesterday's elections.
From the Guardian:
Independent monitoring groups said returns posted at about two-thirds of polling stations gave [Morgan] Tsvangirai [leader of the opposition party, Movement for Democratic Change] 55% of the vote to Mugabe's 36%. The monitors said there was no way for the president to win the election legitimately. He had even lost in his home territory of Mashonaland as well as other former strongholds.
Mugabe is showing no signs that he will accept the loss, however. A spokesman warned Tsvangirai
not to declare himself president because that "is called a coup d'etat and we all know how coups are handled."
Apparently taking the threat seriously, Tsvangirai has yet to make a public appearance.
