    Frazer earlier called for an end to the violence in Zimbabwe and said opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai should head any new government, dismissing the prospect of a second round of the presidential election.
     

    Results from the March 29 presidential election have still not been released but officials have said no candidate won more than 50  per cent and there should be a run-off between Tsvangirai and Mugabe.

     

    Frazer has been on a tour of the region, which began in South Africa, to put pressure on Mugabe to step down. She has met with South African officials and the presidents of Angola and Zambia.
