PF candidate Edgar Lungu has extended his early lead going into day four of the presidential election after polling 701,089 votes which accounts for 48.72 of the votes verified and announced by the Electoral Commission.

ECZ Chairperson Justice Ireen Mambilima announced that Mr Lungu is still leading the race to State House after votes from a total of 121 constituencies were verified by the Commission.

UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema is still in second place with 674, 185 votes which makes up 46.85 percent of the vote.
Edith Nawakwi still maintains third place with 11,770 votes representing 0.82 percent of the vote

There are now 29 more constituencies remaining to go and Justice Mambilima is optimistic that the final set of results will be announced and verified during the next media update scheduled for 21 Hours.

And Justice Mambilima has revealed that a dispute between ZNBC and the Commission has arisen over allegations that the national broadcaster was broadcasting wrong results.

She announced that the Commission has since suspended the display of results in the Elections Centre conference room at Mulungushi and on ZNBC TV until they get to the bottom of the matter.

Justice Mambilima said the decision was arrived at after the UPND raised concerns over the disparities in the elections results being displayed on TV and those from their PVT system.

She added that the PF also requested to be part of that meeting held in the morning after expressing similar concerns.

On the contract terms with ZNBC, Justice Mambilima said she could not say much about how much money is being paid to ZNBC for relaying the results.

‘What we can establish is that something or someone has gone wrong. We need to get to the bottom of this. Right now ECZ and ZNBC are glaring at each other. ECZ has the correct results. We will establish how a result released correctly, can be transmitted wrongly. People must keep their cool. Wait for ECZ to declare the winner, we are still waiting for results from 29 polling stations. Have seen lots of false results which are causing anxiety,’ she said.

She added, “How were results directly fed into the ZNBC system altered? We had a contract with them. In the past we had a contract with Muvi TV and we never had that problem. It is a matter of concern. We need to get to the bottom of the matter. What on earth happened?

Justice Mambilima continued, ‘Result for Kabompo West was wrong, even after being corrected, it was still wrong by ZNBC. As ECZ we are not able to speculate because we are still waiting for results from the 29. Please wait for us to declare a winner, don’t allow your cadres to celebrate. We have already seen a lot of false results out there. Let’s not inflame the nation, tell the people we are still waiting for 29 constituencies. Let’s keep calm.’

    • all these UPND candres, calling people thugs,
      is that how you were taught to adress people?,
      you blind followers, why cant you wait for ECZ to announce?
      Tell your presidesnt Elections cant be won by Mulungushi centre if already lost in the polling stations,
      some of you comments are so rude here on LT and only have place at ZWD

    • You don`t expect free and fair elections in a Failed State like Zambia. These elections have been rigged in the last 2 days.

      Shame!!

    • I have little to no confidence in the ECZ. That is not to say these results are not genuine.

      It is difficult to trust them whatsoever

      Thanks

    • Its game over for PF! The short stories of lies have caught up with your Donchi Kubeba syndrome.
      PF has democratically been voted out and now Emmanuel Mwamba who does not work for ZNBC, seems to be “PFNBC ” , why would he call the shots?
      Last kicks of the corrupt elements! How on earth would a national broadcaster be transmitting wrong results in this era? Shocking!
      Time has come up, moving Forward is a must and indeed, we are moving Forward from the pathetic failures of PF to freedom and democracy of UPND.
      Viva HH, Viva Hakainde Hichilema, Viva UPND & Viva Forward!
      Yazanda Lelo PF cadres, yalula lula rigging and expired formula! Kekekeke kekekeke!
      Viva HH ! Viva, Viva HH! Viva Flight 15.
      The One,
      The Skeleton Key

    • ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Results for 150 constituencies..Edgar Lungu 802,369 and UPND 769,985… this is confirmed by The Post , Grace Mwanza ,Transparency International and of the already announced results by ECZ… these people and institutions mentioned here have been accurate and professional from the beginning of PVT and confirming with ECZ. We thank you Zambia…

      i thank you

    • YOU KNOW WHAT ZAMBIA IS A FAILED STATE BECAUSE WE HAVE ALLOWED CORRUPT THIEVES,ROBBERS,SCATTERED BRAINS TO RULE OVER US.THEY CARE LESS OF THE PEOPLE OUT CLAIMING THAT THEY ARE HUMBLE.
      I HAVE GIVEN UP AND AM ONLY PRAYING THAT AFTER ANNOUNCING OF THEIR EL DE DRUNK,THE COUNTRY WILL BE CALM.

      IT’S OVER FELLOW DEMOCRATS,THE ELECTIONS HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY COMPROMISED AND RIGGED.NO HOPE WITH THESE DEVILS.
      AM NOW SIGNING OFF.
      GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

    • Mark my words!!!!!!!!!!
      Whoever will be involved in rigging this election, God will deal with them harshly. You can be clever with man but not with God. Evil people never learn lessons. And you call Zambia a Christian nation, wait!!!

    • Zambians have spoken and chosen a new political entrant over a perpetual, endemic, chronic and veteran loser. how do we honor the veteran loser?

      His tribesmen poured out in massive numbers played a tribal and regional card.
      They made utopian promises totaling more than 215, but have been adequately handled, contained and managed and consigned to history books where they rightly belong.

      What a glorious race its been……I am proud to be a Zambian

      Twalibelela uku wina

      Halusa Hagain Huyu Hena Hakasuka Hapena Hmuku Hlusa

    • lungu has lost this one remember there is still katombola constituence where hh has polled 15400 and EL 400. not yet added to this and still many more from western and North western.

    • NOTE: WRONG RESULTS WERE NOT JUST UPND, BUT FOR PF AS WELL. AND THE MATTER HAS BEEN ADDRESSED. THERE ARE NO WRONG RESULTS NOW. ALL CREDIBLE, SO LEAVE ZNBC ERRORS BEHIND. AFTER ALL ZNBC IS NOT ECZ.

    • The UPND’s main complaint was about a disparity between what the ECZ announced and what the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) displayed on the screen,”
      Mr. Chama said. “We also have similar complaints.

      ZNBC broadcast lower figures that what was announced by the Commission.

      We raised the anomalies that resulted in the announcement of lower figures in the following
      constituencies: Chawama, Chipata Central, Chipili
      and Chililabombwe,” he said. Mr. Chama said the party won Chipata Central by more than 10,000 but ZNBC reported 4000 and for Chililabombwe they said UPND won yet the PF won.

      Peace…

    • This can’t be right. According to the opinion poll carried out by Muvi TV, with only 29 constituencies left, HH should have about 83% and edgar around 13%. Haha. I look back to how overconfident UPND and HH were and I can’t help but laugh. Declaring oneself winner way befor the election! You know what they say, pride comes before the fall!

    • Ba visionary, wait for what??? we know you docile zambians, just go and eat nshima na kapenta. always trying to find justice in a GOD no one has ever seen. lesa alemona, lesa alemona!!! and you sit back and do nothing. Akamona kanga uyu wiine lesa without ever doing anything. Just shut up if you have nothing better to say. Get of your a.s.s for once and do something or better yet, just shut the F up!!!!

    • ****LATEST FROM ECZ****

      FROM 141 CONSTITUENCIES

      EL 780,691

      HH 752, 850

      ONLY 9 CONSTITUENCIES REMAINING

      EDGAR C. LUNGU LEAD IS 27,841

      IT IS A FORGONE CONCLUSION

  1. You don`t expect free and fair elections in a Failed State like Zambia. These elections have been rigged in the last 2 days.

    Shame!

    • Read a bit of political science or Max Weber to understand what constitutes a failed state. Otherwise, you sound like ignorant Maureen Mwanawasa, despite her law degree.

    • Tell us how and where this rigging took place.You had your own polling agents at all polling stations.The problem is that the moment they find that their candidate is losing during counting,they leave the polling station without waiting for final formalities like signing the results sheet.Do you expect ECZ not to make progress?

    • Your anguish and bitterness is understandable! Are you aware that your Moses has tumbled for the 4th time? Anyway in case you want to commit sucide, quickly get in touch with me. I have a strong sisal rope in my back yard! Believe you me it will be an express job!
      Please enjoy your mourning period!

  2. ECZ in future sign contracts with a number of media organizations. You know for sure that ZNBC is easily manipulated and the workers there are all PF cadres. They know for sure that once a new president is elected then their jobs are at stake. Please be mindful of the hackers as well. Your figures can be tempered with on the way to the totaling center.

  4. Looking at the “shrinking” number of UPND stronghold constituencies, I’d say they (UPND) will need to up their voices in alleging vote rigging.
    The latest 10 constituency results show that the margins by which HH is winning is his stronghold areas are lower when compared to EL. And more importantly the strongholds for HH are running low and therefore I predict a growth in the gap when the announcement is made at 21:00hrs. Equally a lot of grambles from UPND supporters.

    • You are right. The difference between HH and EL is 32384. This is the correct picture from 150 constituencies as verified by Transparency International, Grace Mwanza and the post. These have been consistent with ECZ from the begining though ECZ is reporting late the same figures. HH gave the PF a good run for their money. Southern province has taught the Zambian voters a lesson and believe me in the next elections in 2016 we should expect a big difference in terms of numbers of voters in PF strongholds. And this means that even if HH contests the 2016 elections, PF will still carry the day with a landslide victory. Tongas and Lozis, you have taught us how to vote and we shall revenge come 2016.

  5. Good that the tree parties have come to the conclusion of their concerns. It is good that the discrepancies have originated from ZNBC and not from ECZ..
    We give credit to Mambilima , let democracy rule in Zambia.

    For now we wait patiently for the final announcement of the results at 21 hrs when the winner shall be declared. We are ready to receive any between the two HH or EL.

    Peace and Prosperity to Mother Zambia.

      Mr. Chama also says the decision by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to invite representatives of all political parties during the verification of the results before they are released will ensure that the credibility of the results is not assailed unnecessarily.

  6. WE WAIT AND SEE. IT SEEMS LEADING KEEPS OSCILLATING FROM ONE SIDE TO ANOTHER. WHO KNOWS WHERE THE NEXT OSCILLATION WILL FALL. MAY BE EL, MAY BE HH..

  7. The correct heading of this report should have been “HH narrows gap”. This trend will continue until he is elected President. Mwebanthu we cannot have a drunkard like Lungu for President. A character running for President who chickens out of a televised national debate to explain his vision and policies.

    • ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Results for 150 constituencies..Edgar Lungu 802,369 and UPND 769,985… this is confirmed by The Post , Grace Mwanza ,Transparency International and of the already announced results by ECZ… these people and institutions mentioned here have been accurate and professional from the beginning of PVT and confirming with ECZ. We thank you Zambia…

      i thank you…..DONE

    • Well your HH attended the Debates while EL was debating with voters in the field.Who is reaping the desired fruits now?
      When you label EL as a drunkard you are clearly campaigning for him as for every 10 Zambians 8 hammer their Mosi or Castle like me on a daily basis.

    • joe, you have just said the right stuff……the dude is a drunk, just like me and ive accepted i cant be president and he is a convicted criminal, how was he allowed even to stand ..? he had stolen from an individual even his practice licence revoked, he is a womaniser who used to chow ladies at the tall trees in his car. then he is scared to be asked questions on tv coz he has no answers….then you vote for such a person into power!!!! come on people…

    • mdala ni pa zed, it does not matter how much you cheat or disrespect the people, i mean missing that debate was disrespectful to the zambians but hey, balibe navo nanchito!!!! bean nipa bwato!!! if you ask any o the pf cadres why they dislike HH, the only reason they will give you is that he is either a tonga or a mason. Ignorance at its highest order. But hey, the people have spoken, so be it. Congratulations Brother Lungu. Wishing you the best in all affairs of your governance.

  8. Instead of stating that EL has ” extended” his lead, check your figures.
    EL 701,089
    HH 674,185

    EL lead cut down to 26,904 from 29,006

    Please try to be objective or employ school kids to do summing up for you.

    • They are stating the truth according to WHOM leading. The % margins HH is cutting down remain the same. So he really is not making any gains per say, just adding more votes as figures come in.

      This is correct reporting with NO bias.

    • @ Patriot abroad

      Wow, in the interest of truth, your statement comes from where? Your interpretation of ” objectivity”?

  9. Whoever, will be declared President for Zambia at 21:00 hrs will be my President & I urge him to hit the ground running and heal the nation becoz the next election is only 18 months away

We thank you Zambia…

    i thank you………………………………………….

    • I don’t know why HH cant see that he has lost. The results for the remaining 29 constituencies are VERY MUCH in favour of PF plus the 26,000 votes already amassed, my two year child would definitely laugh at me if at all I gave him this as maths problem.

      Bye bye HH.

      Its Edgar Chagwa Lungu in State House tomorrow.

  11. HH has done well because of the MMD MPs that supported him come 2016, ni kolopa kolopa mukulu wanchito chagwa Lungu.

  12. Ok nalishibe ati fi UPND mulifipuba nomba delay yama results has brought more rubbish from you. Namulusa kalileniko. Abanenu balalila. Icikonko cilepaya

  13. I thought the discrepancies were discovered due to their detailed PVT. If thats true then they exactly know where they are standing. Someone should wonder why TIZ has stopped updating their PVT status. You will be in for a rude shock. Lets just be patient.

    • No shocks here to come as most South Western votes counted. That was the threat. Now we are almost in clear waters waiting for balanced NON TRIBAL influenced votes to be counted.

      THESE ELECTIONS HAVE BEEN DECLARED FAIR BY INTERNATIONAL BODIES.

  14. Can anyone lose an election where he wins by landslide in 8 of the 9 or 10 provonces?

    Ba HH just accept defeat.

  15. Mark my words!!!!!!!!!!
    Whoever will be involved in rigging this election, God will deal with them harshly. You can be clever with man but not with God. Evil people never learn lessons. And you call Zambia a Christian nation, wait!!!

    • I thought he said God had told him it was his time or something. Indeed, he must have been talking about another god because he is headed for defeat and my God doesn’t lie!

  16. UPND-Uk Team please bring this to the attention of your Lusaka guys to confront ECZ on this issue. The results they have just given seriously just don’t tally. Latest results are as follows:

    E. Lungu – 701,089
    HH – 674,185
    E. Nawakwi – 11,770
    N. Mumba – 10,737
    T. Kaunda – 7,884
    E. Chipimo – 4,997
    E. Chanda – 6,071
    G. Miyanda – 4,694
    Dan Pule – 2,596
    L. Sondashi – 1,602
    P.Sinkamba – 1173
    TOTAL VOTES 1,426,798

    Then she contradictorily says the TOTAL VOTES CAST is 1,439,030. The Logical total votes cast should be the sum of the total number of the candidates votes, WHICH SHOULD BE 1,426,798. This means there are GHOST 12,232 votes that are not accounted for. Can UPND URGENTLY sort this mess out.

    • Sounds like she clearly made a wrong statement with a wrong number.

      The counted results printed is what matters, and they are not wrong. Also don’t forget the SPOILED votes which have been nullified. Could the nulls provide the answer to your quest? Perhaps she has added on the nulls etc.

    • @ Mpika man. All I can say to you is that you are GULLIBLE. The right species for exploitation. At least trying to think over it.

      @ Carburettor phiri from what I know is that void ballots are not counted as votes cast. They are tallied under rejected ballots which in this case still are said to be 14,451. Thanks for pointing out that to me bro…

    • Please add spoiled votes because spoiled votes are cast by people. If there is still a discrepancy then you can can complain. But please remember once the votes have been verified you can only contest the results in court if I heard the Judge correctly, when answering a UPND lawyer who was advocating for a recount.

  17. Edgar Chagwa Lungu is the President of Zambia…congrats to HH for trying but as we always say, you shall never rule Zambia unless you start with lower ranks..thnx

  18. These people work with animals and insults are their nouns and adjectives. Bitterness and envy are their hearts. Repent from manipulations of freemansory cult. ECL was voted for wisellllu

    • @ Katondo boys, Kevin and Gen,

      Please take your cool, the issue at hand (verification of the results between ECZ & ZNBC) is crucial and it affects the Zambian populous except those of you on PF payroll. Your biased comments seem to suggest that thats who you are. Please think bigger think about Zambia not just your selfish ends.

      Read Justice Mambilima’s statement and give them time to sort out the mess for the benefit of Zambia. We want and we need Peace.

      Remember, it is not over until it is over.

      This calls for level headedness. May the best man for Zambia Win.

    • Indeed!

      Aren’t we glad the female folk are the ones in charge of ECZ! They are really proving a point; MOTHERS/WOMEN ARE MORE PATIENT THAN TESTOSTERONE DRIVEN FATHERS/MEN.

      Can you imagine the likes of Shakafuswa or Kambwili in charge of ECZ? God bless our women!!!!

  19. Which results are they going to
    follow when declaring a winner? Official ones by ECZ or any.It does not matter whether Znbc changes the figures because ECZ will announce the real ones

  20. Oh dear, dear! Less than 2 million voters or so but we still can’t know who the winner is after 5 days. Surely this has to be one of the definition of a failed state.

    It was clear to me that if HH lost these elections, he lost them in LSK and CB. The gap in these areas were just too big. These are the areas which were supposed to be ‘neutral’ and enlightened as to see through the [email protected] rhetoric of PF.

    If rigging really took place, it also clear UPND have been blindsided. Usually rigging is done in remote locations with small # of voters but looks like this time it happened in urban areas right under their noses. Their focus was somewhere else.

    With this tightness, chances are UPND won it in reality… however E. Lungu will be declared the winner which is a shame.

  21. New hope for HH supporters-im on the ground & this 26904 deficit will be cancelled by Katombola &Lukulu figures of 15479 & 12845 respectively as by today!I have the pvt.Please my dear HH supporters get it right-we are winning.Just wait for these figures & more to be included & you will believe me.Leave those premature victory celebraters to drop dead at 21:00hrs update.Wait & see-we never talked & now i have finished my pvt! Stay calm-HH is winning I’m assuring you thanks!

    • @Katondo Boys a big thank you to you too…can we do the same, in fact better in 2016… I will get on the ground by Tuesday next week to start campaigning for one Edgar C. Lungu for 2016… My calendar is fully booked for the entire 2015 but I will make some time for this noble cause.

      Peace.

  23. 121 Constituencies out of 150 have been verified by the Electoral Commission of Zambia. The next briefing is at 21:00hrs today.
    Edgar Lungu PF 701,089 – 48.72%
    Hakainde Hichilema UPND 674,185 – 46.85%

    • Inferiority complex nobupuba will not take you anywhere…..You must ask your self one question..YOUR LEADER AND CLAN ARE THE “MOST EDUCATED AND RICH”BUT YOU HAVE FAILED TO BEAT THE PF WHO ARE”ILLITERATE AND POOR”

  24. Lusaka, January 23, 2015 – Patriotic Front Secretary-General Mr. Davies Chama has expressed confidence that the results released so far are credible and representative of the will of the people.
    Mr. Chama also says the decision by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to invite representatives of all political parties during the verification of the results before they are released will ensure that the credibility of the results is not assailed unnecessarily.
    This follows a two-hour meeting that took place between the ECZ, UPND and the PF. The ECZ decided to invite the PF because some of the complaints raised touched on the PF.
    The meeting chaired by the ECZ Chairperson Justice Ireen Mambilima resulted in the delay by the Commission to announce more results at 11 hours.

    i thank…

  25. ECZ has somehow mishandled this elections to some extent; they started announcing results even when other pipo had not voted by the time. In this world of technology; internet, sms, etc, these pockets of voters were surely influenced by ECZ announced results. Who ever forms govermnet ( I hope PF & EL) must fire Mambilima and Co. She is incompetent. It is not actually HH and his merrymen delaying election results, but it is ECZ cross arrogance and incompetence.

  26. I don’t understand, if Northern and Muchinga vote in mass for there tribesman, it not tribalism except for other provinces. Grow up people.

    • GM meant to say ALL Tongas are UPND but NOT all Bembas are PF. Threin lies the difference . Continue this trend and you willalways loose. Even by 29 votes – will be a bridge too far

    • I think what GM meant is that we Bemba’s are scared of Tongas. They seem to be more educated and they toil for there wealthy, while ifya tosobola fye

  27. a 1.87% difference combined with a voter turn-out of about 35% out of ca. 3 mio eligibles is damning for our democracy; in future the law MUST allow for extension of the voting period if UNFORSEEABLES like the stormy-rains we had avail.

  28. “Nangu utalike,usuminishe nayena ni time”

    Agony is a certain leader telling his people that he has won an Election & his people start slaughtering cattle in celebration only to discover that they have lost the Election

    i thank you

  29. Zambian media lacks critical analysis. They dont know how to report elections. All what they report is what someone is claiming or saying. A simple analysis of reporting will include for instance which constituencies ‘ve been added to the official list, candidate’s strongholds, 29 constituencies are remaining & in whose strongholds, their projection or exit polls as well as telling us total number of registered voters. This component should be able to highlight how many voted. This information can be obtained from election observers at polling or tallying stations. The lack of critical analysis is what has fueled lies on the social media & making the electoral system prone to manipulation. If the media was objective & above board we wouldn’t have reached at this stage where…

  30. ZNBC has transmitted wrong figures, final ECZ copies signed but no indication where the people who signed are from. Zame votes for different contituencies, we are tired PF lets recheck and call a spade a spade. madam Mambilima ask for thorough verification and those IT chaps at ECZ using the system to manipulate. Posterity will judge that in some way. God punishes people in different ways.

    VIVA HH

    Mambilima & Isaacs show us your strenght as women. Fairness and firm please

  31. Who has the most chance of winning in these remaining constituencies?

    1. Mwembeshi

    PS. The Senga Hill results are also out and the winner is ….

  32. This election has exposed a very big tribal divide in this country, which I think is a source of genuine concern.

    I have got a suggestion. How about free education for up to four children born in an intermarried family. Any other suitable incentives can also be suggested, perhaps in the constitution.

    Australia does it. There are incentives for marrying an aboriginal family.

    I know we have got a few beauty problems relating to Bembas but I guess we can strike a compromise somewhere.

    Because at the rate we are going, I see ethnic trouble very soon. Whoever wins, the voting patterns suggest total intertribal mistrust.

    The only province that has passed this test is Eastern, as far as this election is concerned.

    • @TUTU well I just had a chat my boy who happens to be Tonga, I can safely say you have really point out a sad reality…I am from Eastern so perhaps Easterners are an exception.

      Its a nasty situation, the better the leaders sort this out the better…I suggest it must be done before 2016 elections.

      From your comment you seem to have had a bad experience with our tribal cousin women in terms of beauty….kikikikiki but come on there are not that bad….so tonga bulls start marrying bembas….kikiki

      Eish

  33. History repeats itself. KK lost with 20 constituencies to go. In 2001, the late Mazoka (MHSRIP) has a press briefing claiming that he had won, when he didn’t and when full results came in, he lost. In 2006, Late Sata held press brief and claim he had won. People were still voting in Kaputa and two other constituencies in Western Province the results were not announced. He conceded defeat. In fact the Post Newspaper which was then a stauch supporter of Sata had indicated that he had lost. In 2008, Sata lost with three constiuencies voting. In 2011, the results were announced in night, after 125 constituencies, RB lost. Today strangely after 121 constituencies there is no clear winner, is it true? Its a lie. Spare headaches?

    • It’s about arithmetic. If the remaining voter turnout cannot change the result, then they declare. In this case it’s too too close, less than 1%! So they need to count them all before announcing

  34. Ifintu ni Lungu

    According to The Post, here is a public notice just released:

    PUBLIC NOTICE TO ALL MOTORISTS
    Please take note that part of independence Ave from Cabinet office,church road,Cairo road,great North Road, will be closed or partially closed to facilitate the inauguration ceremony for the 6th Republican President from 6-13 hours on sat 24 Jan 2015. Motorists are advised to use alternative routes. please take this as official notification. Habeenzu Mulunda LCC

    Viva ECL, Zambia’s 6th Republican President

  35. Hello Zambia? Campaigns are over and we have voted for our neutral leader whom we thought could win and bring sanity to mother Zambia, yes, there could be negative thoughts towards the winning candidate, but lets put the differences, insults, name calling and at large Tribal remarks aside. Therefore respect one another tribe as we are One Zambia One Nation.

    Viva Zambia……..Viva One Nation………Viva……….One President.

    Thanks.

  36. Let us wait and see. Stop insulting friends. One Zambia one nation, one winner many losers. But we can all win and lose. Cool down, HH can surprise foolish excited bloggers like katongo boys dull-slow learner. Observe times and changes taking place. Be cautious sons of the bitch. Bola ni 90 minutes. We are all ready to celebrate for any winner as Zambians.

  37. Congrats LUNGU. Whatever the results you have, the end difference from 150 constituencies will be 34 384 votes in favor of Lungu.

  38. EDGAR LUNGU HAS WON WITH A DIFFERENCE OF 32 384. AND I DO HEREBY DECLARE EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGA AS A DULY 6TH ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF ZAMBIA.

  39. All the people who HH had stand against in the previous elections are not running against him this time around due to death, forced retirement or are simply no much to UPND. So UPND has it in their mind that it is their chance to rule since especially with the support of MMD Mps and a few PF. If he misses this chance I would urge UPND to look elsewhere for another candidate in the next election. HH also knows that it is now or never. Meanwhile if EL goes through, it will be difficulty to remove them even after a year because they will now consolidate power and correct the mistakes that the late apparently did. Undo everything wrong that Sata did and EL will be a sweetheart!

  40. Very soon we will know who made the right endorsement ……………………………..dont go chasing waterfalls please stick to the rivers and lakes that you are used to

  41. When i saw the headline i was exited, but calculating, only to find the the gap has acutualy reduced. What kind of people write these articles. Employee grade twos maybe.

  42. People may be wondering why voter turn-out was high in UPND strongholds. The explanation is simple, they arranged transport to pass through villages and ferry people to poling stations. Some people even received compensation for their time to go voting.
    Whether this is legal is not for me to say. But PF should learn something from this. If this is legal then do the same next year.

    • It’s common that opposition is more motivated to vote than the incumbent party whose supporters tend to feel safe, as if no need to vote because “of course” it will be their candidate. It is the same in Europe where outsider parties like the National Front in France gain seats and referendum results because of complacency of ruling party voters. I’m not sure if you can accuse UPND of doing anything wrong here, it’s just Lungu is not as popular as he thinks (or not as popular as Mwamba thinks). He should have considered this before alienating rich and influential people like GBM

  43. I have been telling those upnd fanatics that it is not possible for Hopeless Hopeless,HH,to win because of tribalism.

    • ****LATEST FROM ECZ****

      FROM 141 CONSTITUENCIES

      EL 780,691

      HH 752, 850

      ONLY 9 CONSTITUENCIES REMAINING

      EDGAR C. LUNGU LEAD IS 27,841

      IT IS A FORGONE CONCLUSION

      BA ZAMBIA WE LOVE YOU

      NOMBA NI EL2016

  44. Just look at the voting pattern in UPND strongholds and you will realise who the real tribalists are. Northern and Eastern Provinces gave HH more votes than NW, S and W provinces gave Lungu combined. You have now opened our eyes, come 2016 you will see what will happen! It seems you have taken this tribalism thing too far. We will give you your own poison to drink come 2016. This I promise you!
