The coming together of these parties has been necessitated by shared commitment to bring to an end the current hardships confronting Zimbabweans, due to the failed policies of the past, said Makoni, whose New Dawn party won 8 percent of the vote in 2008. He spoke at a joint press conference with Tsvangirai, leader of the Movement for Democratic Change in Harare, the capital. The alliance follows a July 5 coalition between the Zimbabwe African Peoples Union, which draws its support mainly in the western region of Matabeleland, and a separate faction of the MDC led by Welshman Ncube.
