We are concerned that some individuals and political parties are looking to rush the announcement of the election result when it is imperative that every care needs to be taken to ensure the final result is accurate.

It may prove a tiring and lengthy process but the democratic outcome must prevail regardless of delays that have resulted from the late starting of voting in some polling stations, bad weather and the closeness of the race. The ECZ must be allowed the time and space to complete its work.
Our PVT numbers are showing positive results for our candidate Mr. Hakainde Hichilema who has benefitted from high turnout in UPND strongholds, as well as unprecedented levels of support across the country, particularly in Eastern Province.
We have not announced or released these numbers as of yet given that voting is still underway at some stations and following the decision of the ECZ to halt its announcements of the results until voting has closed.
