Zimbabwe: Expect Results From 3.pm - ZEC

DONE Polling stations officially closed

From the 152 constituencies announced by Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC), Zanu PF has already bagged 110 seats with MDC Alliance winning a paltry 41 and two going to National Patriotic Front and Independent candidate. "There are 58 seats to be declared".

Elections during Mugabe's 37 years in power were largely marked by violence and allegations of fraud.

Those results are likely to be fiercely disputed by the opposition party, whose 40-year-old leader Chamisa has repeatedly said he wouldn't accept anything less than victory.

Hundreds of angry opposition supporters outside Zimbabwe's electoral commission were met by riot police firing tear gas on Wednesday as the country awaited the results of Monday's presidential election, the first after the fall of longtime leader Robert Mugabe. "We further urge the Defense Forces of Zimbabwe to use restraint in dispersing protesters", the United States embassy said in a statement, adding it was "deeply concerned" by events in the Zimbabwean capital.

MDC Alliance's Tendai Biti said there was a clear attempt by Zanu-PF to interfere "with the people's will".

Briefing the media in Harare this mid morning, ZEC Chairperson, Justice Priscilla Chigumba said the results will be announced as they come in, adding that they are confident that all the results will be announced earlier than the stipulated 5 days.

MDC supporters took to the streets on Wednesday to protest against the outcome of the elections. "They are stealing our election".

European Union observers are due to give their preliminary report on Zimbabwe's election later on Wednesday, two days after its first ballot since Robert Mugabe was ousted by the military after 37 years in power.

The ruling Zanu-PF party has won the majority of parliamentary seats.

Opinion polling ahead of Monday's election had Chamisa neck and neck with President Emmerson Mnangagwa of Zanu PF.

That would be required if no candidate wins at least 50 percent of the ballots cast by Zimbabwe's 5.6 million voters in the first round.

Giuliani says Trump could soon decide on Mueller interview
Cohen's credibility was immediately challenged Thursday evening by the president's current lawyer, Rudolph Giuliani. Scaramucci did not join in that label, but he did say there has certainly been a breach in their relationship.

The election stands as an important test for Zimbabwe as the country tries to rebuild its economy and worldwide standing after almost four decades of Mugabe rule.

Chamisa accused ZANU-PF of trying to steal the election.

One person was shot dead by Zimbabwean soldiers in the capital city Harare on Wednesday after troops were deployed to quell protests over this week's presidential election, witnesses told a Reuters photographer.

It followed a surprise press conference at his home on Sunday at which he stunned observers and called for voters to reject ZANU-PF, his former party.

The new government must tackle mass unemployment and an economy shattered by the seizure of white-owned farms under Mugabe, the collapse of agriculture, hyperinflation and an investment exodus.
