Zimbabwe’s opposition Movement for Democratic Change says it is suspending its leader Morgan Tsvangirai for “deviating from democratic principles”.
The announcement, by MDC Secretary General Tendai Biti, follows a party meeting in the capital Harare.
From 2009-2013 Mr Tsvangirai served as prime minister in a fragile power-sharing government, with Robert Mugabe remaining Zimbabwe’s president.
That unity government ended with the elections in July 2013.
Mr Mugabe’s party won a huge majority in the vote.
