HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) -- An opposition spokesman in Zimbabwe says President Robert Mugabe and rivals have been unable to agree on how to share Cabinet posts.
Nelson Chamisa of the Movement for Democratic Change says a meeting of party leaders broke up with no resolution.
He says the leaders have asked their deputies to keep negotiating on the allocation of 31 ministries. Each party is keen to secure key posts such as defense and finance.
The opposition will have 16 Cabinet ministers. Mugabe remains president while rival Morgan Tsvangirai will be prime minister.
Their talks today are the first since Saturday and the signing of a power-sharing deal on Monday.
