Movement for Democratic Change president Morgan Tsvangirai says a political agreement is still the best option for Zimbabwe.
"I am committed to a new inclusive government in Zimbabwe and all I lack is a willing partner," he said in Johannesburg yesterday.
Tsvangirai won the election in March last year but has been unable to assume power because of disagreements with President Robert Mugabe over key ministries.
Tsvangirai also said he had asked President Kgalema Motlanthe, in his capacity as Southern African Development Community chairman, to convene a meeting between the MDC and Mugabe's Zanu-PF.
"If Mugabe is serious about working with me to lead Zimbabwe out of its current crisis, he will meet me to resolve the outstanding issues," he said.
Tsvangirai confirmed he would be going back to Zimbabwe this weekend. - Sowetan Online
