Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai

President of the Movement for Democratic Change Morgan Tsvangirai actually won the first round of presidential elections in 2008. Yet, official results reportedly concluded that a second round was needed. Tsvangirai eventually withdrew from the next round due to what he deemed voter intimidation carried out by pro-Mugabe security forces. Nonetheless, he has decided to run against Mugabe again, and is considered his only viable challenger.
