The Zimbabwe ruling ZANU-PF and the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) and its faction are expected to hold talks on Wednesday to allocate ministries among them, state media the Herald reported.
Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai and Authur Mutambara, leader of the MDC faction, will discuss which ministries will be held by which party, the Herald said.
The move came after the three reached an agreement on power-sharing last week and formally signed the deal Monday.
The Herald quoted unconfirmed reports as saying that the meeting was scheduled for Tuesday by postponed because President Mugbe was attending a Politburo meeting of his ruling party Tuesday.
Zimbabwe has not had a new cabinet since the presidential run-off election in June this year.
Under the deal formally signed by the three parties on Monday, Tsvangirai will become prime minister and Arthur Mutambara will serve as deputy prime minister. The Zimbabwean new cabinet will comprise 31 members, 16 of them drawn from the opposition.
Meanwhile, the Herald quoted SAPA as saying that organized business in South Africa has pledged to help Zimbabwe rebuilding its economy following positive political development in the country.
"As the voice of business in South Africa, with members holding business interests in Zimbabwe, (we) stand ready to work and support all Zimbabwe parties in the restoration of economic stability and growth," a statement by the Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) said.
"BUSA congratulated the leaders of the three main political parties in Zimbabwe. "BUSA furthermore welcomed the formation of an inclusive government, representing all the major political parties in Zimbabwe,"
The signing of the political agreement would lay the basis for the re-emergence of Zimbabwe, the statement said.
