Go back to the polls?

That’s what MDC is starting to arguing for in Zimbabwe.

The MDC has called for an extraordinary summit of all southern African leaders but is now openly talking about new elections.

The current talks are preportedly stalled by an agrument over cabinet members. In reality, the talks can’t go forward when neither side trusts the other side and the head mediator has lost all credibility with one side:

The MDC has never had much confidence in Mr Mbeki as mediator and one source said that following these proposals they had informed the former South African president that he could “go to hell”.

Given that talks are stalled, a new round of elections may very well happen. The resurrection of PF Zapu and its cesession from Zanu PF would make elections much more appealing to MDC. Could this be on the horizon? MDC is certainly holding firm.
