Zimbabwe poll authority says 'no rigging' in election

Zimbabwe's much-criticised election authority on Tuesday declared that there had been no rigging of the country's election, after the opposition repeatedly alleged that the vote process was flawed.

"We are absolutely confident there was no rigging... we at the Zimbabwean Election Commission will not steal (the people's) choice of leaders, we will not subvert their will," ZEC chair Priscilla Chiguma said a day after the vote.

ZEC has been accused of involvement in previous flawed votes in Zimbabwe.
