Zimbabwe's history of violent and fraud-riddled elections has eroded public trust in voting, but the coalition leaders hope a unified alternative to Mugabe will produce a high turnout that would make it harder to rig the result.
Many of Tsvangirai's supporters and anti-Mugabe activists view Mujuru as an untrustworthy opposition voice.
Tsvangirai, an avid golfer who is recovering from cancer, appears set to be the coalition's presidential candidate — with Mujuru likely to offer him her full support.
