Paul Nyathi|Opposition Movement for Democratic Change Alliance (MDC) is preparing a court application to force the election commission to release results from Monday’s national ballot, Alliance partner Tendai Biti has said.
Biti, a former finance minister, said some election results that were supposed to be posted outside voting stations were not available.
The election, the first since the removal of Robert Mugabe last November, is a two-horse race between MDC leader Nelson Chamisa and President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Biti said it was clear Chamisa had won. No official results have been released.
“We have now received results of the polls. Results show that we have won these elections and that the next president of Zimbabwe is Nelson Chamisa,” Biti said.
