PF candidate Edgar Lungu extended his lead in Tuesday’s tightly contested presidential race polling 780,691 votes from 141 constituencies representing 48.3 percent.

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema polled 752,850 votes and accounting for 46.70 percent.

There are now nine constituencies remaining to be verified and results announced.
The remaining constituencies are Mafinga, Lukulu West, Chama North and Chama South, Mfuwe, Kanchibiya, Mufumbwe, Sikongo and Luena.

This is according to the latest official results released by the Electoral Commission of Zambia as at 22:00 Hours.

MMD’s Nevers Mumba has reassumed his third position polling 13,971 which accounts for 0.87 percent.

Ms. Edith Nawakwi is now on third position with 13,597 representing 0.84 percent of the votes counted and verified.

About 1.612 Zambians have so far voted in this election with average percentage turn out standing at 32.45 percent.

And ECZ Chairperson Ireen Mambilima says the Commission will not rush into declaring a winner before verifying the remaining nine constituencies.

Justice Mambilima said the Commission will wait to exhaust the verification process of the remaining nine constituencies because the difference between the two leading contenders of around 29,000 is less than the 196,691 registered voters.

‘This is a very tight race and we have nine constituencies to report. It is not safe to declare a winner because we may end up declaring a wrong candidate. We have assessed the situation and we will not rush the process because the race is extremely tight,’ Justice Mambilima said.

She appealed to citizens and all stakeholders to keep their cool and see this process to the end adding that there is no need for immature celebrations.
‘I wish to reiterate that until we declare the winner, there is no winner, let us maintain patience,’ she said.

Justice Mambilima said the delay in concluding the process has been caused by circumstances far beyond the control of the Commission.

‘We believe it is better to get a correct result than rush through and get an incorrect result. We are almost there.’

    • Given the many anomalies that have arisen in the process, as expected, this election has been rigged! UPND has been cheated out of their votes by PF in collusion with ECZ. Say whatever you want, I have no confidence in the result and I don’t respect it until all the anomalies are addressed! I’m Bemba but I don’t support unfairness!

    • HH only took advantage of the low voter turnout in PF strongholds that was his strategy very simple but it was also a dirty strategy because it reeks of tribalism..come 2016 there is no way PF will get a low turnout from our strongholds which now is 7 provinces out of 10…no way…and for sure BA ZAMBIA WE LOVE YOU..

      WE EXPECT CELEBRATORY COMMENTS FROM BLOGGERS NEAR AND FAR TOMORROW ONCE THE FINAL RESULTS FOR THE LAST 9 ARE ANNOUNCED…

    • He ha not performed that well. He is still been rejected by the rest of Zambia. He garnered more than 200, 000 votes from Southern more than he did in the last election. You also have to look at the turn out in other provinces. UPND had to reject this guy and have a different candidate. He will lose the 2016 election again as PF will be more organized and will rally around Lungu from the get go.

    • @mwine Mushi,while the rest of the country is voting in an unbiased manner,Southern province still lags behind with tribal voting.Upnd will do worse next election if this trend continues.Anyways,hh will continue winning online elections,like i have always indicated.

    • @3 mwine mushi

      Disagree. HH has benefitted from non Tribal Zambians who voted as Zambians free from Hate.

      His supporters of Southern and Western Provinces have gone down the line of Tribalism which Edgar Lungu’s strongholds did not, indicating HH benefited fromvotes by Inclusive Zambians.

      Fact is HH has in the past, also presently NOT renounced Tribal Hatred. He has instead put himself across as a Tonga Tribal Man demanding that one of his Tribe deserve to be President in Zambia. His fight is sorely based on being Tonga.

      A man such as that will bring Rwandan violence to Zambia. That HH is an intelligent man is true, but unfortunately, he advances Tribal hatred and does not renounce it.

      He does NOT deserve to be President of one of Africa’s Democratic Jewel.

    • @mwine mushi: I would hardly call HH’s performance WONDERS. Given the happenings that preceded these elections, vis a vis PF and MMD internal wrangles, this should have been a cakewalk for HH/UPND. Not forgetting the headstart HH had in the campaigns.

      Believe you me, most of the support HH got from disgruntled MMD and a few PF MPs will evaporate by 2016 and HH will remain with his usual suspects. This was HH’s only good opportunity to win the presidency. Come 2016, PF/MMD will be reorganized, reenergized, regrouped, and Edgar in incumbance. Expect the road to be even tougher for HH in 2016—assuming he is even allowed to run going by UPND constitution. Nonetheless, he put up a good fight and he has been beaten clean by Edgar Lunga, a debutant to presidential elections.

    • NO. JUST THAT PEOPLE STARTED BELIEVING IN UPND DUE TO INITIAL CONFUSION IN PF. NOT THAT HH HAS PERFORMED WONDERS. ALSO THE NON-PAYMENT OF FARMERS IN TIME LOST PF A LOT OF MARKS. THE ALMOST DIVISION BETWEEN EL AND MILES SAMPA LED TO ELECTORATES VOTING FOR OTHER PARTIES. AND A FEW OTHER MORE INEVITABLE PROBLEMS BROUGHT ABOUT THE LOSS OF OUR BELOVED SATA SUCH AS LOSS OF CONFIDENCE AMONGST PF MEMBER. EVEN IF SATA WAS ILL HE WAS TOO GOOD FOR PEOPLE TO EXPECT THAT HE WAS GOING TO DIE. LIKE IN ANY HOUSEHOLD WHEN THE FATHER/PILLAR (OR BREAD EARNER) DIES THERE’S ALWAYS CONFUSION AND IN SOME CASES DIVISION OF FAMILY. OTHERWISE, AGAINST THESE ODDS PF DID EXTREMELY WELL.

  4. The remaining 9 constituencies will cancel each other and so EL has won by 27000 votes. It is clear EL is the 6th President of Zambia.

    Let HH-UPND start mourning now for they have lost clearly and fairly.

      Distance your self from ZWD , when we read the insults there ,all we think of is HH is behind the insults about Bembas.

      We know you became rich after privatisation which sent many miners to death . you can offer nothing to Zambians ,your privatisation matrix is scary.

      To you its about being the richest guy in Zambia. You need love not riches , repent in the name of Jesus.

The fact is what has helped tribal HH to be close to EL is a very good turn out in his southern,western and N/western, plus voting on tribal lines.if PF supporters registered 40 or 50% turn out,HH would have lost badly!!!in 2016 once turn out improves in PF strongholds,Edgar Lungu will easily win it!!!CONGRATS PRESIDENT ELECT EDGAR LUNGU!!PLEASE BE PRESIDENTS FOR ALL ZAMBIANS – BANTUSTAN INCLUSIVE!!!

THIS IS WHAT THE LATE SATA ALWAYS EMPHASISED ABOUT- GO TO YOUR CONSTITUENCIES AND TALK TO YOUR PEOPLE, LEARN WHAT THEIR NEEDS ARE AND DON’T JUST SIT IN YOUR OFFICES. BUT ALL THOSE WORDS WERE FALLING ON DEAF EARS. MOST PF MPs BECAME COMPLAISANT OF HAVING WON THE 2011 ELECTIONS. THIS WAS MADE EVEN WORSE BY KA WYNTER WHO COMPLETELY FAILED TO RE-MOBILISED THE PARTY AFTER WINNING. I HOPE THIS WAS A BIG LESSON TO PF AND THAT THEY WILL GREATLY IMPROVE ON IT.

    • Why are you blaming UPND for your own mess. How did UPND cause low voter turnout? Tribal voting is the pattern all over the country especially in so called PF strong holds. Lusaka and CB is also full of Bembas and Nyanjas looking for street jobs. HH has made an impact. Infact, he has won.

Never make this country ungovernable through issuance of careless statements. Respect the peoples wish and move On!

  20. The man of God prophet TB Joshua gave a prophecy that the ruling party will scoop the presidential elections and the game seems to be over, but my main concern is about our 6th president. Mr E.C Lungu I’m warning you…… Not all people surrounding you are honest with you,most of them are just job seekers and when you stingy them jobs they will deal with you. Look at what has happened to the past presidents….do not eat food from any unknown people, always move with your wife and above all prayer! For it is the strongest weapon Jesus has blessed us with. Congrats for carrying the day though it was not easy…….. And remember to thank God the Almighty. But for you blood suckers God is watching you for the battle is not ours but for the Lord (2 chronicles 20:17-24) do not be…

  28. ZWD is manned by a very dull, tribal Bantustan. People have lost trust and confidence in them since they have showed their true colors.
    A government institution run by a tonga is hell for people from the 7 provinces under his or her custody.

    Things need to be corrected as they stand. It is a grave mistake to entrust such people with authority.

    • You’re being driven by emotions. Sober up. If you wanted HH to win you should have campaigned for him and told him that subsidies and reduced prices do not grow economy or you should have formed your own party in order to beat PF.
      That’s why HH has lost the election – it is coming to pass. It is not rigging.

  30. Just be strong if you’re a supporter of the winner or the loser of the election. Don’t die from shock because one died after Zambia lost to Tunisia. We shall celebrate with the winner and we shall feel bad or mourn with the loser. Lets wait for the final results from ECZ. Stop using the name of God in vain. Respect the voters regardless of their education. Take a leaf, the majority of voters in Lusaka and copper-belt understand why voting is important, and are not only Bembas or Tongas, but all tribes of Zambia. If any candidate fails to win in these two places it means his party platform is not the best. Is 4/5 of the people in Lusaka-Copper-belt Bembas? Is that the reason HH failed to win in these two regions? So how do you justify tribalism in these two areas

  31. Its over EL is the 6th President of our country. Both were good Zambians in the race who had put up their best spirited campaigns. But there can only 1 contender to carry the day. The outcome has created both into national leaders with realistic following across the country. Both need to be respected and recommended for effectively contributing to the maturation of our democracy. However, in a good spirit of mature leadership, HH must magnanimously concede defeat to his brother President elect H.E Edgar Chagwa Lungu. He will respect respect from Zambians and the world. Lets treat each other with respect and love. This was just an election. I expect the celebration to be done with humility and love. Decision 2016 is too close, wisdom, unity and hardwork our crucial going forward.

  32. This is/was a chance to get rid of primitive politics. To do away with spent dinosaurs, to introduce vibrant 21st century progressive minds, get Africa out of the perennial corruption based allegiances and utilize our own resources for the good of our citizens. But we are on the brink of taking ourselves further back – with idea-less cadre controlled existence.
    Lack of political education, the desire to continue with institutionalised corruption and a weak civil society continue to prevent the changes we need. Zambia is doomed with the likes of Lungu in power. But the biggest shock, is Zambians voting for the further lowering of their quality of life. Something is seriously wrong with the current Zambian perception of human existence.

      Now come, come, dear fellow. These elections were a win win for ALL Zambians.

      We all fought till we dropped! This counting and waiting, is down the wire, because we are all winners! UPND Scaled up, but not enough to win. PF, DOWN SIZED BUT NOT ENOUGH TO LOSE, just enough to get a hard warning message from the electorates for 2016. PF cannot be complacent with the feelings of the citizenry any more. Give the people what they want is the message.

      Now since we are all winners will you not rest a bit and leave sorrow, anger and hatred behind? Be joyous, you guys gave a good beating in the numbers! Tomorrow we celebrate together for the incoming President. Lungu. President.

    • The problem is not with the president, but MPs. Look at PF, UPND and MMD Members of Parliament what development have they done to the areas they represent? They are all the same regardless of different political affiliation. Look at some of the people who where campaigning for HH, they have been leaders in government before: but let us down just like some leaders in PF are letting us down. HH did not have a good adviser to stop him from making many promises concerning subsidies and reduced price of things. We have been there with KK. did it work? no. One good apple is that HH has fought a good fight to woke up PF to work hard and PF will be forced to enact the New Constitution which will help Zambia to progress. 2016 is coming very soon for UPND to change strategy.

  35. You will remember my words. From hence, the PF will only be interested in entrenching themselves in power until 2016. The aim being to continue for another five years. The politics, typical of PF, will be of allegiance, ‘eat together’ and supress opponents. Zambia as a nation/country, will slip into a ‘coma’ as the cadre ‘shared’ resources dwindle. Lungu is a lame duck – controlled by those that want a piece of the cake. Nothing will move while the preoccupation will be for how much each one in the regime can amass.
    Zambians, I say, you are doomed. But I feel for the most vulnerable.

      Get your Doctor to check your anti-depressant meds. It’s possible you need a different prescription as clearly right now your meds ain’t working for you.

      1. Lungu is not a Lame Duck, proven by his fight against the ‘Cartel’
      2. PF has delivered Development countrywide for ALL Zambians
      3. Much as there is possibility of corruption, it is unproven right now and PF have not asked for such a mandate.
      4. Why would the PF/ Lungu be interested in only entrenching themselves in power only until 2016? If that is the plan, then why worry? How much can they steal in a 1.9year period? It’s good to eat together. UPND suppress their opponents in ZWD where you can’t post unless you support them. Right now, they oppressed ECZ from publishing results as they come in!

    • U re bitter. U are UPND and ECZ has convinced u that they are doing the right thing by giving u the actual figures for your provinces, southern, western and north western. The ECZ has also given you results from our provinces, you know them. i dont need to tell you.
      1. Edgar is not only intelligent but is Lawyer
      2. Edgar is humble and does not show pride like your HH
      3. Edgar has in the passed acted as president very well
      4. Edgar is the current Minister of Defence, ensuring that HH is campaigning in an environment that is safe.
      5. Edgar belongs to a party that has done roads thru’out Zed, enabling HH and his supporters to reach remote places to campaign easily
      6. Edgar takes beer as a refreshment, at least affording a smile to the next person unlike HH whose face is ever gloomy.

  36. @ Patriot abroad – The PF record is there to see. This is not just about Lungu ( he is not even or ever will be Presidential material ) This about systems, procedures and civilised politics. Lungu is a lame duck that is and will still be controlled by those who ‘swear by’ surviving by ‘eating together’. It will be allegiance politics, consolidation of power in 2016 and continued rape/exploitation of the most vulnerable.
    Voting patterns, political education, rigging issues and a host of other socio issues need to be researched to determine why Zambians would settle for this nonsense of a party like PF. Zambians, if you still, for some absurd reason, want PF, – well you have made your bed, so lie in it! I do applaud all who voted against PF, though. But we needed to kick it out.

    • Thanks for expanding. Far be it for me to argue against your personal take on things as you are entitled to hold those views.

      It’s too late to argue online so am gonna take a break to rest.

      Um, just to say we have had a GOOD election @ Harold Muna and it’s sort of strange to say Zammbians have not chosen their President freely. I personally feel Lungu will step on it and bring respect for PF.

      There are people to be ‘pruned’ out of PF, if the party is to have a better 2016. It’s up to PF to ask if they want to go beyond 2016, which I think they do. They will have to deliver what the people want or be OUT in 2016. SO WHY WORRY @harold Muna? It’s all good in this 1.9 year before the MAIN ONE that will change the face of parliament if HH goes on to win MP Seats at current…

  37. This situation is one of the most depressing ever, for me. Why, why would there be Zambians in this time and age, voting for a PF cadre like Lungu? We need to debate this in all sectors of Zambian society – including areas that need interpretation. Zambians, urban and rural, need to be empowered to an extent where they understand the rationale of political representation and are able to make more informed objective decisions.

  38. You Zambians will regret electing this PF government. You are so dull. Even after all the hardships you have face like the increase in meali- meal and weak kwacha you bring back PF. You Zambians are dull. The kwacha is almost at 7 to the dollar and you bring back this pathetic government. The cost of doing businesses is high. The cost of importing is high. Mines are closing jobs being lost because of high taxes and you bring back this government. You Zambians are truly dull. HH has tried u didn’t listen u lie in your own bed. I’m half bemba and lozi by the way. The voting was not tribal. It’s just that people down south have suffered and cannot allow a useless government to continue to rule. In all honesty mmd was better than this useless government.

  40. Well I am a UPND supporter who wants to admit that from the figures given, EL is on the way to becoming the Republican President.
    It’s important to take a sober look at what these elections represented and what they really meant.
    The result is all there for all to see. The easiest conclusion is that it was a tribal election. This may be so, but that wasn’t the major reason. The reason is mistrust of the PF by half of the voters and EL must address this.
    To do this, he must distant himself from tribal supremacists in his Party like Jean Kapata, Mumbi Phiri, Chishimba Kambwili, Dora Siliya, RB and many others.
    Half of the voters are hurting, he must find the antidote and try to fix the problem. The workers, middle class and racial minorities don’t trust him. Zambia is deeply divided.

  41. The level of thinking in most bloggers from this site is very pathetic. I believe Hakainde Hichilema is not the only one who is in the opposition in Zambia therefore, I wonder why he is being insulted to such an extent. This tribal tag which is being smeared against him from my deduction is actually practised by the same characters who talk about it much. In other countries, these are the situations which lead to civil strife so it is common knowledge to gauge the language that you use against other people. There are so many people I have seen in the opposition but why only Hakainde all the time ? I can foresee a situation where Zambia will go on fire very soon.

The want to make HH come out like he is some kind of god. Someone who never makes mistakes and never gets sick.

    I condemned PF when its supporters spoke of Sata as if he was immortal. I, however, supported the candidature of EL because the one who came out to be arrogant is HH and his over promising reminded me of Sata whom I never voted for.

    Trying rebranding HH and maybe, just maybe some of us may consider him!

    For now, I am delighted that EL has won!

  49. Let’s call it as it is. First I reckon the PF have used fraud to retain power in this election. The level of idi0sy by most bloggers on this forum is astounding. No wonder this election wasn’t even about issues at all. In their own myopic thinking they think HH is the one to lose in these elections… let’s face it the man is rich already and he doesn’t need the presidency to make him any richer. But this thought of thinking is due to the fact politics in Zambia is about enriching one self. So they are blinded by the fact that now they will have unlimited access to national resources and plumber unhindered.

    HH has lost in all the Bemba speaking dominated regions (Northern, Muchinga, Luapula, etc)… I doubt he would lose on issues/policies, if not for tribe.

  50. That’s fair enough… but this country will remain a sorry basket that it is despite its potential. Lungu was planted there by the Bemba tribal mafias and they will control him the same way Sata was controlled by the cartel.
    A combination of electoral fraud and Bemba tribalism cost HH these elections. I doubt he could have run any relatively better campaign than he did… especially compared to the disorganisation, infighting and mudslinging that characterised the PF and MMD campaigns. Obviously all the campaigns were not really about issues, including HH’s. But it was a far better, if not best campaign. To claim that he lost these elections due to the tribalism of our Southerner Tonga cousins is being dishonest.

  52. For me HH was the best candidate in this election in my opinion – no I’m neither Tonga nor a UPND cadre. But who will pay the price is Zambians and not HH.

    If Lungu continues in the path of Sata’s legacy (which he said he would), I see my people in Barotseland really reverting to the pre-1964 self-rule. Don’t be surprised if the Southerners and North Westerners join them.

    Some of us might pour in our own personal resources and knowledge to have such an objective realised. This is because it appears other areas won’t be given a chance to determine their own destiny without our Northerners Bemba friends. Yes I say this not out of malice but it is a fact. If it will make you feel any better, my wife is a pure Bemba and I tell her with a straight face.

    To be sure that his message was clear, he called a grade 3 pupil Tamara in front.

    Headmaster: Mutinta, Tell your friends, Why are we not coming for classes tomorow?
    Mutinta: Because we are going to vote for Edgar Lunguuuuu…..

  55. In order to bring about sanity and unity in our country Zambia, I would suggest if possible PF and UPND to form one government somehow. A lot has been said and done on tribal and social grounds which is not healthy for our country now and in the future. I think this country is worse now than ever before because of these elections. If UPND is really for national development and if PF are really Patriotic, they will consider this. However, I know that selfishness will conquer such a thing. God will help this country.

    I’m not pre-emptying EL maiden Presidential Speech but I want to appeal to follower bloggers to start the process on ‘reconciliation’. We are ALL ZAMBIANS regardless of color, tribe, race, rich, poor, boy or girl.

    Having said that ‘losers’ must accept defeat and learn some lessons. ‘Winners’ must take time to celebrate their hard won victory.
    The ultimate winner is DEMOCRACY.

    I have no doubt President Lungu will embrace every Zambian those at home and abroad.

    So if tribes feel
    uncomfortable with this
    colonial arrangement
    which puts them in one
    country with other tribes they dislike, why not
    divide Zambia

Let us disect the Bembas expose them and hammer them. They are thieves, lazy, beggers, manipulators. Now on the thieving side a Bemba can never even be trusted by most employers. They will steal and they will even praise themselves (umubemba ali chenjela). Even a foreign investor will soon learn that people from this tribe are thieves. My boss who is from Germany knows that by now. On the begging side, just take a walk in town and you will see. It is all because of laziness. Driving from Nakonde to Kapiri Mposhi will clearly show one that these people are lazy. You wont see even a chicken at any house along the road. All…

It really pains me we simply failed to act by our standards and played there game.

If PF gets more than 75% of the total votes cast in its strongholds its okay and when HH gets the same in his strongholds, its tribal. Its simple: each person has the right to chose whichever candidate they feel could bring development to his country. Lets be realistic in the way we judge these things. Thank you Zambia except that there are some individuals whose thinking needs some panel beating. We all belong to this country Zambia, lets not spoil it with selfish and individualistic thinking.

  64. From a rational standpoint it’s a clear as daylight the sympathy vote is headed to win. It is the sympathy vote that is working for Edgar Lungu in the same way the sympathy vote worked for RB in 2008 when RB beat Sata after the death of Mwanawasa. Plain and simple. The cultural tradition in us as Zambians is strong in times of bereavement.

    When the celebration is over, by his own admission we will be left with a visionless leader. Visionless does not bring hope to citizens. Add questionable health this visionless new captain of the boat and you have a man who cannot stand up to anything. Such a man will fall for anything, e.g. he just fell for RB.
