A poll monitoring group in Zimbabwe says it has found a "wide range of problems" in elections there and that the poll was compromised by a campaign to stop voters from casting ballots.

Solomon Zwana, head of the Zimbabwe Election Support Network, made the comments on Thursday, a day after the election pitting longtime President Robert Mugabe against his rival Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.

The monitoring group says as many as 1 million out of more than 6 million eligible voters were not on voters' lists.

Mugabe has denied allegations of vote-rigging as a smear campaign by opponents.
