With power-sharing talks in Zimbabwe deadlocked and unlikely to be restarted soon with a regional summit on the matter not even scheduled, the National Constitutional Assembly is urging the formation of a transitional government to address the humanitarian crisis.

The group announced in a news conference Monday that it is launching a series of protests that will begin next Tuesday in larger cities to pressure politicians for action.

NCA National Director Earnest Mudzengi told reporter Patience Rusere of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that his group's three-point plan includes the transitional government, a new constitution, and free and fair elections to be internationally monitored.
