Cape Town - Zimbabwe is unlikely to hold elections by the end of 2011, although polls are likely to take place within the next 12 months, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai said on Thursday.

"There will be no election this year, it will probably be conducted in the next 12 months," Tsvangirai told a news conference in Cape Town.

Tsvangirai, who is in an uneasy power-sharing agreement with President Robert Mugabe, has previously said conditions are not right for a free vote. He has threatened to boycott polls - which Mugabe wants held in 2011 - if they are called this year.

    The Prime Minister is no match for the skilled tactics of Bob. If the elections did take place this year and he decides to boycott them, some in MDC-T will participate and thereby cause yet another fracture in the already weakened opposition in Zim. This PM is not a politician!
