Zimbabwe parliament passes unity government law

HARARE (Reuters) – Zimbabwe's parliament unanimously passed a constitutional bill on Thursday paving the way for a coalition government of President Robert Mugabe and opposition rivals.

Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader Morgan Tsvangirai last week agreed to join a unity government with Mugabe’s ZANU-PF after months of wrangling over ministerial posts had stalled a power-sharing deal signed last year.
