The Zimbabwean Electoral Commission (ZEC) says it hopes to announce the results of the Presidential election on Thursday. This comes amidst the eruption of violence in the streets of Harare after the results of the National Assembly polls were announced earlier Wednesday afternoon.
Police fired teargas and rubber bullets at groups of Movement For Democratic Change (MDC) supporters who had barricaded streets, claiming that the elections were rigged by the ruling ZANU-PF party.
According to reports, at least one person has been killed in the violence.
ZANU-PF won a two thirds majority in the National Assembly with 207 of the 210 constituencies declared.
The winning party garnered 145 seats in the National Assembly or 69% of the votes and its closest rival, the MDC Alliance 59 seats or 28%.
