Zimbabwe Election Results In

After more than a month, the election results are finally in.

Zimbabwe's opposition party is proposing sharing power with President Robert Mugabe's ruling party, but not with Mugabe.

Opposition leader Tendai Biti rejects official results calling for a presidential runoff and says the only way to resolve the impasse is with a "government of national healing."

He told reporters the opposition's presidential candidate Morgan Tsvangirai should form a unity government but that Mugabe should surrender power.

Official results released Friday said Tsvangirai won 47.9 percent of the vote to Mugabe's 43.2 percent.

This sets up a run off election between the two. The conventional wisdom has been that Mughabe has delayed the results in order to intimidate his opponents before the run off. We will continue to track.
