Zimbabwe's governing Zanu-PF party has confirmed President Robert Mugabe as its candidate for the 2018 elections.
Mr Mugabe, who is 92, has been in power since independence from Britain in 1980.
At the party's conference, the Zanu-PF youth wing even proposed that Mr Mugabe should be declared president for life.
However, there have been unprecedented protests this year against Zimbabwe's economic turmoil and Mr Mugabe's leadership.
The Zanu-PF has also suffered serious infighting as factions battle it out to succeed Mr Mugabe once he eventually leaves.
His supporters broke into thunderous applause and chanted "tongai, tongai baba" [rule, rule father] as the Zanu-PF annual conference in the south-eastern town of Masvingo nominated Mr Mugabe on Saturday.
In his acceptance speech, Mr Mugabe called for an end to party infighting.
"We agreed that conflicts should end. Infighting should end. The party ideology should be followed," he said.
"Let us be one. We are one family, the family of Zanu-PF bound together by the fact of understanding between its members."
Mr Mugabe has blamed the country's economic problems on sabotage by Western critics of his policies.
Amid violent protests earlier this year he warned there would be no Zimbabwean uprising similar to the "Arab Spring".

Despite this one having its own water park, Celine Dion is having trouble selling another of her opulent mansions.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the Canadian singer, who has a residency in Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, has lowered the price of one of her properties precipitously—from $72.5 million to $45.5 million. At its original asking price, the Jupiter Island mansion was one of Florida’s costliest homes when it hit the market around two years ago.
The 5.7-acre estate boasts two spacious guesthouses, a tennis pavilion, water park with two connecting swimming pools and a Bahamian-inspired main residence. Still, that’s not been enough to secure a sale.

The Grammy winner used this estate as her main residence before she relocated to Las Vegas. Other famous residents of Jupiter Island include golfer Tiger Woods and actor Burt Reynolds.
The 47-year-old has also had difficulty selling her Île Gagnon property in Quebec, which went up for sale in 2012. A report emerged that it was sold last month, but Mansion Global was unable to confirm this; the property is still listed as for sale.
The 24,000-square-foot, six-bedroom French Normandy Chateau-style property, built in 2001, is located on a private island not far from downtown Montreal. It features a private bridge, wine cellar with tasting room and a wood panelled library. Asking price? $18.9 million.
