Mugabe Agrees to Later Election Dates in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, 89, has reportedly agreed to postpone the country’s election dates after mounting regional pressure around the initial July 31 date. The opposing party Movement for Democratic Change has been aiming for a later date so that key security and media reforms could be enforced before the elections.
