    Zimbabwe's long-standing leader Robert Mugabe will be running in next year's presidential elections.

    The government is testing new biometric voter registration technology, which means everyone eligible to vote will have to register again.

    Opposition parties say they won't accept the result if Mugabe is re-elected and are also suspicious of the new registration system.
