On Friday the ruling party of Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe's refuses to budge on any demands from the opposition.

The fate of ruling party on Friday refused to budge on opposition demands for a unity government, whose fate hinges on the outcome of a regional summit next week.

Our position is that we shall not meet any new demands made by the MDC, Mugabe's lead negotiator Patrick Chinamasa said in the state-run agency New-Ziana.

Chinamasa ruled out any negotiations on cabinet posts and said the issue of governor and ambassador positions would be addressed by an inclusive government if vacancies arose.

He told reporters, We are not going to agree to a reopening of the subject on allocation of ministers.

Zimbabwe's economy has been in freefall for years but a humanitarian crisis has exploded since disputed elections last March, when opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai defeated Mugabe in a first round presidential vote.
