Zimbabwe opposition leader has dismissed Wednesday's election as a "huge farce" and said the results were invalid because of intimidation and ballot-rigging by President Robert Mugabe's ruling party, which is claiming victory.
"This has been a huge farce," Tsvangirai told a news conference at his MDC party's headquarters in Harare. "In our view, that election is null and void."
Zimbabwe's leading domestic election monitoring agency - The Zimbabwe Election Support Network - has said there has been a "systematic effort to disenfranchise an estimated million voters".
