A record 23 presidential candidates have been cleared to run in Zimbabwe's elections on July 30, including incumbent Emmerson Mnangagwa and opposition leader Nelson Chamisa, the country's electoral commission announced. It is the first election since former president Robert Mugabe was ousted following a brief military takeover in November last year, after 37 years in power.
