A Quick Guide to the Zimbabwean Presidential Elections
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.
