Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai said on Wednesday that the nation's polarizing president, Robert Mugabe, would accept the result of the next elections, even if they don't go his way.

Mugabe disputed the results of the 2008 election, eventually reclaiming his seat amid violence and allegations of fraud. Tsvangirai, Mugabe's opponent in the elections, said that next time around the president will be committed, for his own legacy and the legacy of the country, to move forward and he has to accept the result if it is conducted in a free and fair manner.

Tsvangirai said he expects new elections within 12 months, now that Zimbabwe has adopted a new constitution.
