PM Tsvangirai says he is pushing for national elections to be held in March 2013. His party, the Movement for Democratic Change says although the process of writing a new constitution is still under way, elections will be possible less than a year from now. “It’s just not possible to hold elections this year, there is no constitution and no referendum has been held,” Tsvangirai said. “Elections will be held at the outer limit that is in March 2013 when the current term of the lawmakers would have constitutionally expired.”
