Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai says he thinks President Robert Mugabe is ready to give up power if he loses the country's next election.

Mr. Tsvangirai said Wednesday that he did not see any reason why Mr. Mugabe would want to bring another election dispute to the country.

The two leaders competed in a contested 2008 vote that led to a shaky unity government.

Mr. Tsvangirai said the president is committed to his legacy as well as that of Zimbabwe.

Mr. Mugabe has led the Zimbabwe government since 1980.
