Zimbabwe Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai vowed Wednesday to block President Robert Mugabe's efforts to set a date for key elections before democratic reforms are implemented.
"You can't set a date of an election without my concurrence. Period. I will not give legitimacy to that election date unless we agree," Tsvangirai told civil society organisations, days before regional mediators meet to discuss the polls.
Zimbabwe is due to elect a successor to Mugabe's four-year power-sharing government with Tsvangirai, his long-time rival.
Its tenure ends on June 29.
