Diplomats told Reuters that despite shrill rhetoric from Harare over the EU's team of election observers, the 15 nations' ambassadors were unlikely to impose sanctions.
Zimbabwe's state-run daily newspaper accused the EU of arrogance and bullying on Wednesday and vowed the government would never accredit the Swedish head of the EU observers, whose mission is to help ensure the March 9-10 elections are free and fair.
EU foreign ministers agreed two weeks ago that if Zimbabwe prevented the deployment of observers or prevented the international media from covering the election freely, the EU would impose a travel ban on the top 20 individuals in Mugabe's inner circle and their families.

 Printed Version
September, 2002, would be a suitable time to study what was happening in the Swedish general election campaign but also some of the controversial issues omitted by common consent of the parties already sitting in the Riksdag.
Given the obloquy heaped on the extra-parliamentary Swedish Democrats and the more militant National Democrats for their anti-migrant stances one might have expected Mr Leijonborg and his Liberals as well as the Moderates who took up similar proposals to come under attack or be at least put on the spot in the media.
Leijonborg appeared in his “sofa debate,” moderated by a skilled TV professional of non-traditional Swedish appearance (a glamorous ethnic Indonesian from her appearance) while he was “confronted” by beautiful lady of Greek ethnicity, though naturally a Swedish citizen.

In contrast to 2000 and 2001, which retained elements of the late 1990s, 2002 shifted into a new cultural decade.
With the declining popularity of late 1990s and early 2000s acts like 'N Sync and The Backstreet Boys after band break-ups, rap acts like 50 Cent and Eminem rose in popularity.
2002 also marked the begining of the controversial Iraq War, which many say, along with 9/11, was the true generation definer of the 2000s.
