Asked for the Prime Minister’s response to Morgan Tsvangirai’s decision to withdraw from the presidential elections in Zimbabwe, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that the Prime Minister was sure to say something on Zimbabwe during the course of today, not least since it was raised at the European Council meeting last Thursday. The Foreign Secretary had set out the Government’s general position yesterday and there was not much to add to that at this point.

Asked if the Prime Minister was disappointed that Morgan Tsvangirai had decided to pull out, the PMS replied that what the Prime Minister was disappointed about was the scale of intimidation and violence in Zimbabwe, which had limited Morgan Tsvangirai’s ability to campaign.
