prime minister morgan tsvangirai 30-08-10.jpgMDC–T President, Mr Morgan Tsvangirai says he is committed to working with ZANU-PF towards the lifting of illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by the West and will work for the implementation of the Global Political Agreement in its totality.

 

Addressing a media briefing in Harare, Mr Tsvangirai said the three Principals in the Global Political Agreement met on Monday to discuss the implications of the resolutions of the SADC summit which was held in Windhoek and a number of issues came up.

 
Mr Tsvangirai said to show his commitment to the GPA, he has undertaken to work with ZANU-PF towards the lifting of sanctions.

 

“I believe in the GPA and I believe in sticking to my word, I will continue to work for the implementation of the GPA in its totality, including the lifting of restrictive measures,” said Mr. Tsvangirai.

 

Mr. Tsvangirai said his party’s national executive has also agreed that it will be in the people’s interest to invite SADC to deploy observers before the voting on the referendum to adopt a new constitution.

 

“I therefore invite SADC to deploy observers before the constitutional referendum to help protect the rights of Zimbabweans to express their views freely and without violence or intimidation,” added Mr Tsvangirai.

 

The MDC-T has recently called for a negotiated constitution, a move which has been heavily criticised by other political parties and analysts who say it smacks of double standards and goal shifting as the part committed itself to the people driven constitution in the Global Political Agreement.
