Mugabe's govt: parliament to convene next week

President Robert Mugabe's government says he will open parliament next week, a step the opposition had said would undermine power-sharing talks.
Cabinet clerk Austin Zvoma said Wednesday that members of parliament will be sworn in Monday and Mugabe will open parliament Tuesday.
The opposition Movement for Democratic Change says any unilateral decision to reconvene parliament would call into question Mugabe's commitment to power-sharing talks.
The opposition won the most parliament seats in March elections. But presidential elections held alongside the parliament vote were disputed, and Mugabe and the opposition began power-sharing talks last month to try to resolve the impasse.
