Drip, Drip, Drip From Zimbabwe

Okay the long drip, drip, drip of results from Zimbabwe's elections is indicating a different result than expected following the intial postings of results outside counting stations at the weekend. This is looking like some sort of Zanu PF attempt at manipulating as close to a statistical tie as they can manage.

Now after Movement for Democratic Change claims that Morgan Tsvangirai had run 60% of the Presidential vote, but that we sould expect a result saying Robert Mugabe would have 52% just eenough to avoid a run off, it appears that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission on on the verge of calling a run-off.

So obviously there weren't enough votes stolen or otherwise to even get to the magic figure of 52%. The eyes of the world are still on this and the BBC presence inside Zimbabwe seems to be increasing on a daily basis at the moment.
