Preliminary data from the ‘Peace Room’ Joint Electoral Observation Platform point to a significant victory for Frelimo presidential candidate Filipe Nyusi, with 72% of the vote.

The information was shared at a press conference Wednesday afternoon in Maputo by ‘Sala da Paz’ spokesperson Felicidade Chirindza (see video below).

“In terms of projected results, the ‘Sala da Paz’ data, – although preliminary, based on the reading of result sheets [editais] –  indicate a 72 percent victory for candidate Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, followed by 21 percent for Ossufo Momade, Daviz Simango with 5.8 percent,”said Chirindza.

However,  Peace Room notes, data will vary as result sheets are released on the platform. “This data is in line with the projections which are being shared by the press,” she said.
