Regional leaders try to get Zimbabwe deal on track

Regional leaders try to get Zimbabwe deal on track

Zimbabwe's main opposition leader is expected to argue for an equal share of key Cabinet posts at a regional summit called to try to get the southern African country's power-sharing deal back on track.
The deal has stalled over how to share government ministries among President Robert Mugabe's party, Morgan Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change and a smaller opposition group. Tsvangirai accuses Mugabe of trying to hold on to too many of the most powerful posts.
The leaders of South Africa, Angola, Mozambique and Swaziland are expected at Monday's meeting.
Angola, Mozambique and Swaziland make up the Southern Africa Development Community, a consultative body on politics, defense and security.
