Polls close in Zimbabwe Referendum


Voting came to an end in Zimbabwe's referendum that is expected to endorse a new constitution that would reduce President Robert Mugabe's powers and clear the decks for elections later in the year.

About six million eligible voters had been expected to cast their ballots on Saturday at 9,456 polling stations and as at 5pm, less than a third of the 6.6 million registered voters went to the polling stations to cast votes.

The new constitution would curb the presidential powers that Mugabe has enjoyed during his 33-year rule and lay the groundwork for elections due in July that would end an often acrimonious power-sharing deal between Mugabe and Tsvangirai.
