Zimbabweans have approved a new constitution that curbs the powers of the presidency and puts the country a step closer to holding national elections in the next few months, the election commission said on Tuesday.

Nearly 95 percent of voters in a referendum approved the new charter which was supported by President Robert Mugabe and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, political rivals who were forced into a power-sharing deal after disputed elections in 2008.
