PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa and his Zanu PF amassed a total haul of 145 seats while the MDC Alliance got 63 from Monday’s general elections, according to the final poll results by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC).
This was revealed by ZEC Commissioner Qhubani Moyo during a briefing this Thursday morning by the poll management authority.
There are 210 contestable seats in Zimbabwe’s national assembly.
The result represents 69% parliamentary representation for Zanu PF and 30% for MDC Alliance.
The other two seats were snatched by Temba Mliswa, an independent candidate and National Patriotic Front’s Masango Matambanadzo in Kwekwe Central.
According to the results, MDC Alliance failed to get a single seat from Mashonaland Central’s 18 contested seats. The MDC only got one seat from 26 contested ones in Masvingo.
There were no seats for Thokozani Khupe’s MDC-T and the Joice Mujuru led PRC.
Earlier during the day this Thursday, ZEC had announced that Zanu PF got 144 seats and MDC Alliance 64. ZEC had said the MDC Alliance won 4 seats in Mashonaland Central with Zanu PF winning 17. The correct position is that the Alliance won 3 and Zanu PF 18.
They announced the correction during their second press briefing same day.
The presidential election results will be announced starting 10 pm this Thursday.
