Zimbabwe's Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, on Thursday, threatened to boycott presidential and parliamentary elections if President Robert Mugabe called them for 2011.

Mugabe and his ZANU-PF party, forced into a unity government with Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) after a disputed election in 2008 that was marred by violence, is pushing for early elections this year.

“If Mugabe proceeds to announce an election without my agreement, that will be a unilateral action and we as MDC will not be party to that," Tsvangirai said.
