Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's party has won a huge majority in parliament in this week's elections.

 

With most seats declared, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission said Zanu-PF had won 137 seats in the 210-seat chamber, just short of two-thirds.

 

Results in the presidential race have yet to be announced.

 

Mugabe's main rival, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, has already dismissed the election as "a sham"
