Zimbabwe's ruling party ZANU-PF announced Friday it would back President Robert Mugabe in a runoff vote against opposition presidential candidate Morgan Tsvangirai, while the opposition party demanded an official tally from the first vote.

President Robert Mugabe faced an uncertain future for the first time in his 28-year rule of Zimbabwe, after the opposition claimed victory in last weekend's presidential race and his ruling party lost control of parliament, official results show.

As officials began to release election results Monday, showing a split between Zimbabwe's ruling party and the opposition, accusations of President Robert Mugabe's government rigging returns to hide a loss threatened to throw the country into chaos.
