United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is calling on Zimbabwe's political leaders and population "to exercise restraint and reject any form of violence while awaiting resolution of the disputes and announcement of the election results," his spokesman said on Wednesday.

"We are concerned about the reports that there have been incidences of violence in parts of Zimbabwe," U.N. spokesman Farhan Haq told reporters. "We'd like to remind the incumbents and the political parties of the commitments they made, the peace pledge and the code of conduct to ensure a peaceful electoral process."
