Zimbabwe presidential election results expected from Thursday: electoral commission

HARARE (Reuters) – Zimbabwe’s election commission said it now expected to start announcing presidential election results from Thursday because there were allegations of disputes around tallies that were posted outside polling stations.

The main opposition and ZESN, the main domestic election monitor, had on Tuesday said one in five polling stations – more than 2,000 in all – had not physically posted tallies on their doors, as required by law.

“It depends with whether those who disagree with something would like to use legal remedies but sometime tomorrow we should be able to advise you what time we can, if any, start announcing the presidential election results,” election commission chair Priscilla Chigumba told reporters.
