Zimbabwe to delay debate on unity government law

Zimbabwe's parliament will delay debate on a law to create a unity government, a senior opposition official said on Wednesday, a setback that could further hold up a solution to a political and economic crisis.

Parliament was expected to start debate on constitutional changes creating a prime minister post for Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai on Wednesday, but a fresh dispute erupted this week, with the MDC accusing President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF of backtracking on the unity deal.

MDC chief whip Innocent Gonese told Reuters the rival parties' negotiators would meet on Wednesday in a bid to settle outstanding matters before the proposed constitutional amendments were brought to parliament.
