BREAKING: Mugabe-Tsvangirai Run-off Likely

Zimbabwe Today is reporting that a run-off in the presidential race there is likely:

Two different sources of information have agreed this afternoon that the contest for the next President of Zimbabwe, known already to be a two-horse-race between Tsvangirai and Mugabe, is so close that unless the figures are changed by Zanu-PF's vote riggers, there will be a run-off vote.

Both the independent organisation Crisis In Zimbabwe Coalition and my source within the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) agree with the following figures:

Tsvangirai 48 per cent
Mugabe 44 per cent

Under the constitution, this means there will have to be a two-man run-off vote.
