HARARE - President Robert Mugabe's party will press for elections in Zimbabwe this year, state media reported on Thursday, in a move set to trigger a fresh dispute with its partners in a fragile unity government.

Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, who formed a power-sharing administration with rival Mugabe two years ago after disputed 2008 elections, has ruled out a fresh poll this year, saying constitutional and political reforms must come first.
