Emmerson Mnangagwa declared winner of the zimbabwe’s presidential election

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been announced as winner of Zimbabwe’s July 30 presidential elections. The 75 year-old leader polled 50.8 per cent of votes as against 44.3 per cent polled by his closest challenger Nelson Chamisa of the MDC Alliance..

 

Zimbabwe electoral rule says a candidate needs to win 50 per cent plus one vote to clinch the presidency.

 

In the final result declared by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, Chamisa won 2,147,437 and Mnangagwa led with 2,460,463 .

 

Before the result of the last province of Mashonald West was added, Chamisa had 1,921,714 votes, while Mnangagwa got 2,147,628 votes.

 

Mashonaland West was the stronghold of former leader, Robert Mugabe, who urged voters on Sunday to snub Mnangagwa and other members of ZANU-PF as punishment for toppling his administration last November in a military coup.
