Members of Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabes ruling Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front party (ZANU-PF) said they would consider forming some kind of national unity government with the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). However, the ZANU-PF rejected calls for a new election. Several nations have called for new elections. The US State Department issued a statement saying the US would not resume sending economic aid to Zimbabwe until dictator Mugabe was no longer in power.
