Zimbabwe opposition says ready to contest run-off

PRETORIA, May 10 (Reuters) - The leader of Zimbabwe’s main opposition group said on Saturday he would participate in a run-off after disputed elections on March 29 in hopes of unseating veteran President Robert Mugabe.

"The MDC ... will contest the run-off. I am ready, and the people are ready for the final round," Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai told a news conference in South Africa.

"The election should take place no later than May 24," he said. (Reporting by Phumza Macanda; Writing by Caroline Drees; editing by Sami Aboudi)
