Zimbabwe's opposition party is proposing sharing power with President Robert Mugabe's ruling party, but not with Mugabe.Opposition leader Tendai Biti rejects official results calling for a presidential runoff and says the only way to resolve the impasse is with a "government of national healing."

He told reporters the opposition's presidential candidate Morgan Tsvangirai should form a unity government but that Mugabe should surrender power.

Official results released Friday said Tsvangirai won 47.9 percent of the vote to Mugabe's 43.2 percent.
