UPND campaign manager Depak Patel

United Party for National Development (UPND) Campaign Manager Dipak Patel has urged parties, observers and Zambian citizens to be cautious with regard to the running totals of some PVT analyses circulating.

In a statement released to the media this evening, Mr Patel said that the Transparency International Zambia (TIZ) chapter results tallies released so far have disproportionately originated from PF strongholds and may present a distorted picture as a result.

Mr Patel said that UPND have their own PVT numbers and there are efforts underway that are constantly delivering very reassuring results to them.

Mr Patel called on all political parties to refrain from putting pressure on the ECZ to release results even while the votes are still being cast and counted.

“Premature release of results when important numbers are outstanding may only serve to generate confusion and be counterproductive to ensuring a smooth transition, ” he said

Meanwhile, TIZ chapter vice president Joseph Kalungu has said that his organisation has NOT declared any candidate in the Presidential race but is merely sharing information received from various constituencies.

Mr. Kalungu said that the aim of TIZ is to promote transparency during the election process.

Mr. Kalungu said that TIZ deployed monitors in a number of polling stations in the 150 constituencies to monitor the voting process that took place yesterday and today.

Mr. Kalungu noted that it is only the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) that is mandated to officially declare the results of the Presidential elections.

Mr Kalungu said this is in statement released to media in Lusaka today.

He said his organisation has not speculated any PVT results today and is depending on the official declared results from constituencies.

The TIZ chapter vice president further advised the members of the public not to be misled but instead remain patient and wait for ECZ declaration.

The TIZ’s last update for today from 60 Constituencies Compiled so far has PF candidate Edgar Lungu with 469,910 and UPND candidate Hakainde Hichilema with 350,023.

TIZ will resume its updates tomorrow.

    • he is basically saying they will not accept if they lose.

      UPND should conduct themselves better than PF. This is not an advice but a warning.

      Thanks

    • Dipak stop it. Learn to respect the people will. nevertheless, you can keep those Ponzi results cooked up with with Muvi TV to yourselves. True love comes natural. If its earned based on material worth flashed, its called infatuation. Zambians have decided for fresh politics and stability. They have entered into a realistic social contract with EL.

    • @Ndobo stop lying, most of the constituencies which were affected are in Kaputa, Muchinga, Eastern-Petauke and about 3 in western province. So when you do the math there’s no way HH can close the gap.

      As of this evening Edgar is leading by a whooping 167,000. that’s translated into 57% and HH 43%.

      Viva EL Viva PF

    • MMD need not even bother. Just FIRE Nevers Mumba right now. Politics is not for him, has now been proved and justified.

      You don’t win in politics by just having FAITH in GOD, but rather play hard-ball from the belly and work hard.

      The average national count for Nevers from polling stations is 245. What a total waste of time.

      In the meantime winner takes all and the nation must just accept in peace.

      Good luck to both HH & EL

    • The truth is both PF and UPND have the results through their respective PVTs. And the truth is Lungu has lost because if Lungu won, they would be pushing Justice Mambilima to announce like they did in 2011.

    • And where are UPND strongholds? My friend official voters register at ECZ has these facts:

      1 CP
      Reg. Voters: 483,790

      2 CBP
      Reg. Voters: 845,439

      3 EP
      Reg. Voters: 600,098

      4 LP
      Reg. Voters: 408,791

      5 LSK
      Reg. Voters: 796,687

      6 MP
      Reg. Voters: 269,139

      7 NP
      Reg. Voters: 434,478

      8 NWP
      Reg. Voters: 315,588

      9 SP
      Reg. Voters: 617,461

      10 WP
      Reg. Voters: 394,617

      TOTAL 5,166,088

      So basically, SP is counseled out by EP, NWP and WP are counseled out by NP and MP. Which leaves CP, CBP, LP and LSK. And tell me how well UPND/HH is doing in these provinces? Facts can be very stubborn indeed.

      Game over! UPND should rebrand and lose that tribal tag or else we are expecting Chipimo and Nawakwi to be the next opposition.

    • Zambians have chosen incompetence over substance, drunkness over sobriety , corruption over integrity , job seekers over visioneries. UPND has lost this election but more importantly Zambia has lost UPND and a chance to have a government that will build institutions which are strong and can stand the test of time.

      I was driving past a group of hawkers on the streets and they mocked me that we have lost. The hawker was high on some drug . I felt sorry – not for myself because I was in a good air conditioned car BUT for him bcs it is the poverty of people like him , that made me spend money on campaigns than waste it on sea cruise holiday with my family. Perhaps next yr when an RB inspired EL does to Kola klux klan what KK(EL) did to Kapwepwe

We must all respect the winner as our leader and thank the ones who will not be as so fortunate as to win the election for providing this healthy competition. The losers now may just win next time. At the end of the day it is the people of Zambia who are the Victors. I thank you all.

    • I’ve it’s not 50 constituencies but polling stations. The figure includes those in Kaputa, Chama south and north and a few in western province. Get your facts right. The registered voter population in these 51 polling stations is 21000 only. With average voter turnout of 30% this translates to just over 6000 voters between the eleven candidates.

    • Dobo,
      Stop misleading people, it is 50 polling stations in far flung and hard to reach areas with a total of 21,000 voters who may not all vote.
      Just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle as the extra time allotted has been played already.
      Voting is about casting and not MUVI TV fake opinion polls where UPND facebook voters each with 100 fake accounts vote. This is the reality now.

EL does not have the grassroots and even if he cheats this time he will definitely lose in 2016. The Wynter factor is something to greatly consider. He cannot be as popular as Sata, especially that the MMD votes are skewed towards HH. These results are flawed if thoroughly checked the is something wrong. Anyways, it’s people like you who bring Zambia down by supporting incompetent person like EL

  12. How UPND manipulated the votes
    A pre-market ballot was distributed to households on Monday 19th in the rural communities in Choma, Monze, Pemba, Sinazongwe, Namwala, Monze, Mazabuka, Gwembe, Siavonga and Zimba. This ballot paper clear indicated that UPND It was stuck at a school block or community hall less than 10 metres from the polling station against the electoral act. This explains why more vote UPND. The other electoral malpractice was that people were threaten by their traditional leaders; told that HH has won, they will not receive fertilizer and seed as HH and UPND will form next government on 20th January, 2015. so would be deleted from FISP.

  14. Depak, you do realise that whatever so called PVT numbers you have do NOT count, right? The official and final tally and say can ONLY be done and certified by ECZ. So far ECZ has only announced results from 13 constituencies. Namely: Chilabombwe, Kalulushi, Kamfinsa, Wusakile, Kantanshi, Mufulira, Mkaika, Kawambwa, Mambilima, Mwense, Chilanga, Feira, and Livingstone. Anything else is pure speculation, kwamana!

    And out of the officially announced results, EL has 92, 026 and HH has 44, 902. So whether UPND or any group has their so called PVT looking promising, it really doesn’t matter.

    It is about time the ADULTS in these groups, especially UPND, stood up and acted like adults before you set our country on fire for purely selfish reasons. Let ECZ do its job in peace!

  15. Dr. Mumba,
    Has been let down by people who claim to know God just like does. Christianity in Zambia is very interesting! Dr. Mumba, remember Joseph was rejected by his own brothers. My word to you is, “BE STILL AND SEE THE SALVATION OF YOUR GOD.” To change Christians on how to think is a very hard. However, worth while doing. Don’t give in, remember, “IT’S THE LORD WHO FIGHTS FOR YOU.” Run the race…pastor…

  16. Take the bitter pill Zambians have sealed this election with EL as the 6th President of Zambia. I’m just looking at the electoral map of zambia segmented by constituency. Its time for HH to prepare a conceding press statement if he has preserve some dignity with Zambian voters. The remaining constituencies are in favor of EL. Big one are the following:
    Petauke Central
    Lumenzi
    Lundazi
    Mpika
    Trust me these are highly populated constituencies such that by themselves they swallow any total of remaining constituency votes in WP or NW.
    Its is practically impossible for HH to turn the tables. I would have believed otherwise had RB been on Nevers or HH’s side. We warned UPND that RB delivered victory to EL the day he endorsed him with all his campaign machinery and logistics realigned.

    • The final nail in the coffin comes with results from

      1). Petauke Central
      2). Lumenzi
      3). Lundazi Central
      4). Mpika Central
      5). Isoka North
      6). Isoka South

      We can expect few votes from sparsely populated constituencies of WP and NWP while Copperbelt rural will follow strong.
      However, i expect HH to emerge strong in General Shikapwasha’s Keembe constituency which has a large voter count. But EL emerges winner with a run away margin as predicted over the last month.

  21. If you do your math, ECL will be the 6th President.
    HH wont be able to close the gap from the remaining results.
    Am non-partisan, therefore it’s up to you what to with these numbers.
    Overall, HH was very competent in this race far much better than RB in 2011.

  24. The fact is that if EL has won we will know by early morning tomorrow even before the ECZ start announcing the results. Just the happenings in the PF camp and government will tell us. The EL is not the type who can let things calmly run to the end if he has already won. He will wait for formal announcement BUT you will tell by things starting to happen.

    If we don’t see or hear any movements in PF and current government by early morning or even after ECZ have started announcing the results, just know PF have lost.

    TRUTH BE TOLD: BY MIDNIGHT TODAY, THE PARTY THAT IS GOING TO WIN WILL KNOW THEY ARE WINNING. BY MIDNIGHT, MOST RESULTS WILL BE IN from polling stations through PVT. The remaining polling stations that voted today are only about 21,000 votes – very little to change anything.

  25. I’m beginning to suspect this UPND team…

    How come, like justice Mambilima noted, PF strongholds have recorded turnout of btn 30% and 40% and in some cases even below 30%.

    Whereas UPND strongholds are recording turnout of more than 45%. Like Southern, the average is 50%. Even in high rainfall zones such as N/western’s Ikelengi the turnout is above 45%.

    Something somewhere is not right… Abena VJ…

  26. THIS IS GOING TO OFFEND PEOPLE BUT ZAMBIA’S BIGGEST PROBLEM AS MY GRANDPA WOULD SAY “BA BEMBA KUHULA MUNO MUZAMBIA”. How can we advance when we have an open border with these creatures (DRC)???? Since they settled in they just keep coming and coming and sadly WITHOUT the 50+1 Rule they determine the winner by simple majority, usually 30%. That is why Zambia is among the more underdeveloped in the region. POUND FOR POUND Bemba’s are the LAZIEST and MOST UNPRODUCTIVE GROUP in Zambia and we will never advance with them holding us down. LORD WHY DID THEY HAVE TO COME AND SETTLE HERE WITH US IN ZAMBIA???It is an INFESTATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. President Obama declared America ready to “turn the page” on years of hardship and economic insecurity in a State of the Union address Tuesday night that offered a sprawling, post-recession domestic agenda aimed at appealing to the middle class – and at revitalizing his presidency in its final two years..

    “America, for all that we’ve endured; for all the grit and hard work required to come back; for all the tasks that lie ahead, know this: The shadow of crisis has passed, and the state of the union is strong,” Obama said.

    It was the first time Obama used the familiar phrase so directly, without qualification or condition, in a State of the Union speech.

  36. BREAKING NEWS!

    The information just received indicate that HH is headed for Victory against Edgar Lungu.

    Southern, Western and North Western Province seem to have swallowed all votes from PF/Lungu’s strong holds.

    The latest results as confirmed and veriefied by all stake holders in 147 Polling station, places HH at 804,122, and Edgar Lungu at 767,879 votes.

    The latest information is as seen by officials at Mulungushi Totaling Center.

    Unless Edgar Lungu and PF do something to over turn the results, then HH is the next President of Zambia.

    HH IS NOW ONE WHO IS NOW HEADED FOR VICTORY.

    As predicted HH is heading for heavy defeat. He is losing in Copperbelt, Northern, Luapula, Muchinga, Eastern and Lusaka with big margins. The gap will reduce with Southern, Western and Northwestern results

  40. The Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) is happy with the tenacity by the Zambian people to exercise their right to vote despite the adverse weather conditions that characterized most parts of the country yesterday.

    FODEP President SHEPHERD CHILOMBE however says a good number of electorates may have been demotivated to cast their votes due to logistical challenges experienced by the Electoral Commission of Zambia.

    MR CHILOMBE has said in a statement to ZNBC News that FODEP regrets the late delivery of election materials in some polling station which had lead to voting to be extended to Wednesday ,January 21.2015.

    He has noted that the NGO will continue monitoring the ongoing counting and tallying processes of the election results.

  41. Patriotic Front strongholds remain intact and the United Party for National Development (UPND) recruited representatives of Mutale Nalumango(Kaputa), Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba(Kasama Central), Patrick Mucheleka (Lubasenshi) and Felix Mutati (Lunte) have been disgraced with a whitewash vote.
    The PF has won Kasama Central, Lunte, Lubasenshi and Kaputa constituencies.
    The quartet were given a dedicated Helicopter to “do damage” in the Northern Province but have been shamed by the strong vote for PF.
    The endorsement and huge financial investments made by the UPND in the PF strongholds have remained meaningless.

    The truth on the ground is that your candidate Edgar Lungu has lost this election to HH, but just by a narrow margin.

    HH has caught up with Edgar Lungu’s earlier big margins, and by the time the last vote is counted, HH will have been massively leading.
    I did not want to answer u Mwamba for it is against our ethics but your uncontrollable propaganda has forced me to…

  45. PF President Edgar Lungu is the winner of the presidential elections according to Parallel Voter Tabulation undertaken by the Zambian Intelligence News. Mr. Lungu has scooped the republican presidency after garnering 55% of the valid votes cast against his closest rival of the UPND Mr. Hichilema’s 42%. These findings are premised on 98.5% of the votes so far brought to the fore as monitored by the Zambian Intelligence News (ZIN) Parallel Voter Tabulation. The ZIN managed PVT has also revealed that the average voting participation vis-à-vis voter turnout was between 30 to 38 per cent with PF strongholds recording the lowest after the party’s campaign machinery failed to re-ignite and excite the larger segment of its voters to turn out. Additionally, the ZIN PVT has also revealed that Edgar

  46. ZIN PVT has also revealed that Edgar Lungu failed to re-garner a large portion of the PF support base that was charmed and attracted to the party by the Late Sata’s Charisma laden electoral machinery. Other findings of primacy by the ZIN PVT include the discovery that the UPND supporters turned in massive numbers largely on account of the well oiled electoral campaign that the party laid out. The UPND also recorded significant gains in new areas at the expense of the demise of the MMD which has been largely a shadow of its former self. The figures below give a detailed numerical outline of the ZIN PVT findings.

    EDGAR LUNGU 55%
    HAKAINDE HICHILEMA 42%
    TOTAL NUMBER OF VOTES CAST: 1, 080, 454
    PF: 589, 101
    UPND: 454, 103
    MMD: 9,997

  47. It was worth the fight, it does not matter who wins at this point, I am proud of the democracy the prevails in our dear country, it is only hard to believe that people are numb to suffering. Well, you can not changes people’s thinking, politics of third world country is not about values but about a person. As long as the winner is Zambian that is fine. HH or Lungu is fine, let us move on, it is life.

    • Spot on my brother. By the end of today the 6th president of Zambia will be announced.Granted some people will nurse broken hearts and bruised egos but I pray that Zambians will, with time, accept the results,weed out their political differences and embrace a spirit of togetherness for the sake of posterity.

  48. Folks, Winning aside, this election has thrown on all of us the challenge to sober up and open up very intelligent national debate. We cannot continue with a simplistic mindset of “its business as usual”. Such is being in dangerous denial that we are facing a growing national crisis in the making. Results of this election manifest a polarizing Zambia faced with enumerable underlying issues that have started shaping up for a risky trend. Its a call for intellectuals to drive a constructive discourse for healing now before its too late. Voter apathy has hit the ceiling while counts of the dissatisfied is on an exponential growth with the voting cementing regionalism. Those who have lost this are equally many and true Zambians. They deserve respect & their voice need to be heard.

  49. DAY OF RECKONING:

    Just in, latest results coming have confirmed the results of PVT which were issued yesterday. HH has closed the gap and is expected to lead with a wide margin after the Western votes have been counted. Edgar’s strongholds where he scored big have all been exhausted serve for the remaining pockets in Northern and Eastern where the margins are insignificant to overturn the gains scored by HH. Other results still being awaited are from North Western where Edgar had a poor showing. Voter apathy in Northern and Muchinga is to blame for Edgar’s loss. Western and Southern has reported huge results for HH especially from Itezhi Itezhi, Dundumwezi and Kalomo in the Southern. All Western constituencies have given HH huge votes to overtake Edgar’s earlier lead.

  50. According to the PVT report, HH has sealed it with a whopping margin of 89,011 over his closest rival Edgar. The results do not include those from the polling stations which were voting yesterday. The total registered voters in the remaining 51 polling stations is 21, 045 which wont be enough to overturn the current results even if all of them were awarded to Edgar. The Chief Justice is expected to declare HH as duly elected sixth president of the republic of Zambia by noon (12:00hrs). Celebrations have gripped the UPND camp with fireworks and fire crackers banging aloud.
    Sorry for PF but should be congratulated for running a good race despite isolated incidents of violence.
    God bless mother Zambia.

    hmm. If it was all up to me, I’d light a stick of dynamite up the áss of PF. However the headline of this article still makes me queasy. What does it mean? Anarchy??

    My own take is absolutely against all forms of anarchy. If you live in a broken system and fall victim to that system, better to pack up and leave than to cause anarchy.

  55. Senior citizen, this is the best and touching comment I have ever head from you on the blog, in a positive way. Do we have such leaders in Zambia who are able to embrace people who think otherwise. Obama once said “for those who voted for me I hear you and those who did not vote for me I also hear too”. We are all proud Zambians, those who voted for the winner and those who voted for the loser, on both sides, they are big numbers. Our system does not allow for a unit government, but embracing everyone regardless of regional demography is what the new leader can bring on the table. We can live as one family, intermarriages, friendships etc bring us together, this makes us to belong to one tribe, which happens to be Zambian. I hope this is the message we shall get from the winner, HH or…

  56. @Pretty, am more than 100 % sure of what I have posted. Am in touch with a reliable and credible source within. UPND has been told to remain calm until more than 80 percent of the results are announced possibly after 10:00 AM. PF is already aware of the impending shock, and an atmosphere of shock and misery is hovering round the PF camp. Nsanda, Emmanuel Mwamba, Samuel Mukupa, Davies Chama, Chishimba Kambwili and Given Lubinda are at Lungu’s residence possibly to plan a way forward. Am more than 100 percent sure because the source am using is very credible and reliable who is within the system(wont mention which department/organization).
    If you are supporting HH, get ready to be part of the wild celebration which will hit the streets with horns after 10:00 AM.

  59. Yah right and you think Zambia Watchdog would have not declared UPND the winner? Just be logical, where does UPND get votes to over come the 110,000 votes from last night’s 60 consistencies? The major constituencies had been factored in for UPND. For that to happen, UPND has to win the remaining constituencies by 90% or more. Check Zambian Intelligence News

    • Rubbish, keep dreaming @Ndaje.
      Am not speculating, this is real and it is happening.
      I will keep you updated with the excerpts from the PVT results report as they become available to me.
      More hot chocolate.
      I would like to hear from Katondo Boys, he made so much noise dreaming a landslide victory for Edgar.
      Never underrate your enemy.
      Sober up and get ready to accept the reality even if it is not what you expected. Remember in every race, there can only be one winner.
      When Edgar was earlier poised to win after releasing convincing huge votes in his favour from his strongholds, I was so sure that he will prevail. If you check my earlier postings under the article ECZ cancels vote announcement, I conceded and accepted that Edgar has won. This was before I got hold of the PVT report.

  61. For the sake of argument. I have just confirmed too that the Zambianwatchdog has been given a copy of the PVT but cautioned not to publish it in line with ECZ advise to avoid inflaming tension. Havent you noticed that Zambianwatchdog is even posting insignificant stories such the legalisation of marijuana in Jamaica just as a way of passing time waiting for the clock. If they didnt have such a confirmation, would they have been that sober? You would have by now been bombarded with all sorts of allegations against the electoral process. I should think they are taking coffee and wine with the jubilant UPND camp. As I stated, just wait for about 10 or 11 AM and you will see what will happen. A historical landmark will be announced that will define the future of our beloved country.

  62. The PVT report was given to the Zambianwatchdog by UPND information team which is also called Image Building Team. It’s the UPND which advised Zambianwatchdog not to publish the report yet. Exit polls from all major constituencies have been compiled both from Edgar’s strongholds and HH. According to the sources, Edgar made some significant improvement after the results from Kanyama and Mandevu were added but was completely eroded after rolling out HH’s stronghold results from Western, Southern and North Western Province. Central Province has reported huge votes for HH in Keembe, Mumbwa and Nangoma in particular. Northern Province as characterised with apathy hence HH was second within safe margin.
    Polls from Kaputa, Chiengi & Mununga were too small to give a clear edge for Edgar.

I wonder what dobo MUVI TV clue, UPND endorsers, Sympathizers and Supporters have been smoking while I was away. Please UPND fanatics, I know that you are addicted to you party but this is what we mean when we resoundingly chant ONE ZAMBIA, ONE NATION. The numbers don’t lie, its GAME OVER. ABASH! MUVI TV, WATCHDOG and POST NEWSPAPER for spreading force-hood; you are screwed once again, nafuti nafuti. Real Zambians cannot be taken for a ride!

  65. I have also been informed that HH will be declared the winner at 12noon there about. Celebrations are taking place at HH’s residence in Kabulonga. There are a lot of cars of his party officials inside and outside his residence. Dipak Patel drove in a few minutes after 6 AM honking at raising his arm and beaming his face with excitement. He refused to speak to a horde of journalists camped at HH’s residence saying the party will issue an official announcement in due course but didnt specify the exact time.
    Some officials belonging to some leading NGOs were also spotted at HH’s residence minutes before 7 AM.
