WORLD BRIEFING / ZIMBABWE

Power-sharing accord stalled

October 28, 2008|Times Wire Reports

A regional meeting failed to break a deadlock threatening Zimbabwe's power-sharing accord, prompting the 15-nation Southern African Development Community to call for a full-scale summit on the crisis.

Officials said the summit could be held this week or next week in an attempt to persuade President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF and opposition factions to implement the accord, widely seen as vital to any effort to pull Zimbabwe out of economic meltdown.

Officials said the allocation of the Interior Ministry, which oversees the police force, was a sticking point.
