Zimbabwe reaches a power sharing agreement

Zimbabwe has been going through massive political turmoil for many months now, with news of electoral rigging and malpractices, use of force, killings, and an eventual decision by the opponent to withdraw from a disputed run-off. However, after many negotiations led by the South African President, it seems that an agreement will be reached in Zimbabwe that will lead to power sharing, with the opposition leader becoming the Prime Minister:

Zimbabwe’s power-sharing agreement marks a new turn in mediation efforts by South African President Thabo Mbeki in the country wracked by the world’s highest inflation rate, the African Union said.
Under the agreement, the Movement for Democratic Change’s Tsvangirai, 56, will become prime minister, heading a council of ministers, said a senior member of the MDC’s governing national executive and two members of the politburo of Mugabe’s Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front. The three officials declined to be identified because the deal is confidential until it’s announced on Sept. 15.

If this agreement comes to a successful conclusion, there may be a chance the decline of Zimbabwe may get reversed. Zimbabwe has been suffering through incorrect economic policies, and undergoes the highest inflation rate in the world (in the millions). With a new Prime Minister (although the current President Robert Mugabe remains in his post), there is a hope that he can bring about changes in policies that would stem the decline in Zimbabwe.
