ZEC: Final results for the House of Assembly

The ZEC has finally announced results for 207 constituencies. The remaining three constituencies (out of the 210 that exist) will be determined by by-elections following the deaths of three candidates prior to the March 29th elections: Pelandaba/Mpopoma, Gwanda South, and Redcliff .

In announcing these figures, the ZEC corrected their earlier figures for Kambazuma:

MDC MT 4771 / ZPF 963 / MDC AM 431 / IND 154 /

has been corrected to

MDC MT 6607 / ZPF 1400 / MDC AM 621 / IND 201 /

In addition to this, the ZEC reported that they had attributed Binga South to the wrong party - to MDC when it should have been to MDC Tsvangirai.

The final count is as follows: MDC Tsvangirai leads with 99 seats; Zanu PF has 97 seats; MDC Mutambara has 10 seats; and Jonathan Moyo has his one seat.

Result announcements for the House of Assembly, by the ZEC, is now complete.

The final share of the vote, according to ZEC announced figures, is as follows:

The most recent results, since our last report, are:

Insiza North
ZPF 6733 / MDC AM 2361 / MDC MT 1595 /

MDC AM 5739 / ZPF 4357 / MDC MT 1689 /

Beitbridge West
ZPF 4239 / MDC MT 1520 / MDC AM 1278 /

Gwanda North
MDC AM 3645 / ZPF 3243 / MDC MT 2509 /

Matobo South
MDC MT 3226 / ZPF 2858 / MDC AM 1452 /

Nkayi North
ZPF 4634 / MDC AM 4234 / MDC MT 1075 / FDU 687 / UPP 172 /

Hwange Central
MDC MT 5045 / MDC MT 1556 / ZPF 1396 / MDC AM 1276 /

Zimbabweans still have their precious sense of humour - inspite of inflation!

Jonothan Moyo, who stood as an Independent, has won his seat in Tsholotsho North! I just want to know how that happened. Perhaps he talked all the Moyo's in Tsholotsho into believing that they are indeed his kith and kin and that he will return the favour... or perhaps, no one else contested in that province ... or, maybe it was the heat, nenzara (hunger)! Well, whatever the reason, that you people of Tsholotsho for being true to your humourous side - you too like Jona are "UNBELIEVABLE"

Your post states that
"The final count is as follows: MDC Tsvangirai leads with 99 seats; Zanu PF has 97 seats; MDC Mutambara has 10 seats; and Jonathan Moyo has his one seat."

Yet the pie chart underneath shows the Zanu PF holding 45.9% and MDC Tsvangirai holding only 42.8%..

I think there's a mistake somewhere..

Makorokote! Amahlope! to all those who have worked so hard.

And thank you to Sokwanele. I am checking you hourly and I don't know what we would have done without you.

Jim says:

TE..the pie chart is a share of the total votes, not a breakdown of the seats won. We can only assume that more people have 'voted' for mugabe than the MDC, but the MDC have won more seats.

Echoing Jo. Thank you so much Sokwanele. For those of us far away from home you preserved our sanity in these very emotional 5 days.

tanaka says:

Zanu PF won more votes than parliamentary seats because they stuffed boxes with ballot papers after having chased away opposion polling agents. Some of them even managed to vote twice. To the people of Zimbabwe, Mugabe will never rule again. Even if the run-off is confirmed, lets hit the last nail on his coffin

My heart hurts with those who used to blame Morgan for not stepping down for Makoni and those who wanted him to share evenly with Mtambura. I hope hamusi kutambura naMtambura wenyu kana kushaya simba sa Simba wenyu. in the final analysis Ncube should not be blamed for destroying the MDC he must only be blamed for making Job Jobless.

Moyo won Tsholotsho but he has an alliance with MDC-T because they did not field a candidate there against him... Look at

babu mugabe honarary consider your people and let the new change bare fruit

Mugabe by nature of things should concede defeat and leave gracefully.No amount of pressure or force will sway the people of Zimbabwe from fighting for their basic right to survive,and to rebult the ruined economy.We are determined that justice shall be done.
