The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission will conduct a full recount of votes from the country's March 29 presidential and parliamentary election on April 19, a state newspaper reported on Sunday.

Commission chairman George Chiweshe said candidates, party representatives and observers would be allowed to witness the process. President Robert Mugabe's party had demanded a recount.

The news comes as a marathon emergency summit on the Zimbabwe election crisis ended with a weak declaration calling for the a speedy verification of results.

Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, who claims to have won the March 29 election outright, had wanted the leaders to press Mugabe to resign after 28 years as Zimbabwe's leader.
