SWEEP?:

Mugabe's party sweeps to victory (BBC, 4/01/05)

President Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF party has swept to victory in Zimbabwe's parliamentary elections.

So far the party has taken 40 seats, official results show - enough to guarantee Mr Mugabe's party will control the legislature. [...]

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has won 32 seats so far, mostly in urban areas, where it is strongest.

A total of 120 seats are being contested, with another 30 MPs appointed by the president.

I am happy to see the democratic process working so well in Zimbabwe. Mr. Mugabe has shown the world that the true will of the people can withstand interference and fear-mongering from the outside.
