MDC says will not join Zimbabwe government

HARARE – Zimbabwe's opposition MDC said on Friday it will not join any new government in the country before outstanding issues in power-sharing talks with President Robert Mugabe's ruling party are resolved, an opposition offical said.

"Neither Robert Mugabe nor ZANU-PF has the legitimacy to form a government. The SADC resolution does not bestow Mugabe with the right to form a government. We will not be part of that, we will campaign against that illegitimate government," MDC Vice President Thokozani Khupe told reporters.
