from addressing the media. the main opposition party leader in zimbabwe tried to hold a press conference on friday in the capital out of it but it was disrupted by riot police who then cleared the area they were then in turn confronted by journalists oh that is what i did that will go to the good and what was it eventually the police did allow the pressure to take place. there nelson chamisa of the movement for democratic change party or m.d.c. claimed the election on monday was rigged his party had taken just over forty four percent of the vote but emerson on god one of the rulings on a p.f. was declared the winner with almost fifty one percent of the vote for those. he had first taken power in november after a brief military intervention which toppled robert mugabe after thirty seven years of iron fisted rule to me so i didn't think much has changed since. we're both out
so. it was. well good at sitting these days. we want to quit buddies of to be one of. those who told me this is ego and goes just to make sure that for the kids it was it for you or did they get it they equally want their us updates and we would want a long and low thoughts that demonstrations erupted shortly after the election result was announced with the military killing six protesters the m.d.c. say they also lost because its supporters suffered harassment and violence meanwhile president men on god why i held his own press conference where he called for an investigation into what happened and also called for unity. zero. to be the president's over all. and imprison and all those
that voted for me. who knows. who saw. what was present. meanwhile opposition leader commission has called for a day of mourning for democracy. correspondent chris chelios us now from harai andrea let's start with emerson my god we're describing these elections as a celebration of democracy tell us more about that why well to understand the president you have to understand a little bit of his history he actually was part of the ruling elite part of the ruling country of the ruling party of the country for a very long time the party that ruled the country for forty years he has been holding various minister positions under former dictator mugabe and last year when we got was forced to resign by the military he finally took over as the president
and he changed his image completely he suddenly portrayed himself as the reformer he opened up the country to investors and he also allowed more freedom more freedom of speech and this electoral process for him was another sign that he wanted to give to the world that he's opening up the country he's been talking a lot about the electoral process that it's been free and fair and according to him also observers said so but the reality is not really like this yes there has been tremendous amount of improvement compared to previous elections in zimbabwe which were not free at all but also a lot of people say there was intimidation here and the process was not as fair as he thinks it was yeah the leader of the opposition called this election fraudulent and illegal what evidence is there for the. well that's exactly the question he could not answer he called in the press today to talk about these issues but he said yes we have evidence our numbers clearly show that i am ahead that i won these elections but then he said i will not be able to publish the
evidence now due to strategic reasons and this of course doesn't make him very credible right now right now he has two options basically one is to go to court to challenge with them and he indicated that this is what he's going to do and that's a second chance he has is to basically mobilizes supporters to stop was demonstrations again it did not sound as if you want to do that because this possibly also has the risk of having violence outbreaks again as we have seen on thursday heading into this election you were reporting that there was great hopes for a free and fair election the first one in the post mcgarvey air how do people feel about how it's turned out well i talked to a lot of young people today on the street and of course everybody has their different political opinion and the party they voted for are different but what almost everybody said is they really want to change right now when it comes to the economical situation of the country zimbabwe is really in a financial crisis that it's very hard to get foreign exchange cassia ninety
