Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa says the party does not accept the Zimbabwe election results and will pursue all legal means to challenge ZANU PF’s National Assembly and Presidential wins.

ZANU PF won close to 70 % of seats in the National Assembly. ZANU PF‘s Emmerson Mnangagwa narrowly beat Chamisa in the Presidential poll.

The MDC Alliance says the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) went out of its way to ensure that the ruling ZANU PF won Monday’s elections. The Commission on Thursday night announced that Chamisa narrowly lost the presidential election to Mnangagwa.

Chamisa has provided details regarding the party’s claims of irregularities in the general elections including the transport of unsealed ballot boxes on the back of trucks. He has asked the international community for assistance.

On Friday afternoon the party held a media conference at a hotel in Harare despite the earlier intervention of heavily armed riot police who chased journalists from the hotel before allowing them to return. Click below for more on the story:
