Zanu-PF Back Mugabe to run for another term

Mugabe party backs election bid
Zimbabwe's ruling Zanu-PF party has endorsed President Robert Mugabe as its candidate for the 2008 election.
Mr Mugabe, 83, has been in power since independence in 1980.

There had been reports that one faction in the party had wanted Mr Mugabe to stand down to end a political and economic crisis.

But Zanu-PF's central committee backed his decision to run for a fresh term in office, a party spokesman said at the meeting in Harare.

"The candidate for the party in 2008 will be the president himself. He was endorsed by the central committee," Nathan Shamuyarira told reporters.

Parliamentary and presidential elections will be held in 2008, he added.

Leaders' support

Earlier, Mr Mugabe urged Zanu-PF members to stay united in the face of international and domestic opposition to his rule.

He branded the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) as "violent", and said: "We can never entertain... a party that is walking the road of terrorism. We will not allow that in Zimbabwe."

Mr Mugabe attended the Zanu-PF meeting one day after meeting fellow southern African leaders to discuss the situation in Zimbabwe at a summit in Tanzania.

Zimbabwe's economy is in meltdown, with inflation of 1,700% and widespread poverty and unemployment.

The leaders agreed that South African President Thabo Mbeki should try to promote political dialogue inside Zimbabwe.

And they expressed solidarity with Mr Mugabe, urging Western countries to lift sanctions.

They also called on the UK, the former colonial power in Zimbabwe, to pay for land reform.

iraq would just get annexed by iran

That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?
