MDC pledge power and freedom

IOL: "Harare - Zimbabwe's opposition claimed victory on Wednesday over Robert Mugabe in presidential elections, as official results showed the veteran leader's ruling party had lost its parliamentary majority.

As state media predicted a run-off between Mugabe and his arch rival Morgan Tsvangirai, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) opposition said its own calculations showed party leader Tsvangirai had passed the 50 percent threshold for outright victory."
