Zimbabwe’s ruling ZANU-PF party has won the majority of seats in Parliament after sweeping rural constituencies by huge margins, official results showed on Wednesday, setting the stage for President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s victory.
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission results showed Mnangagwa’s ZANU-PF cruising to a big majority after picking up 109 seats against 41 for the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). Another 58 seats are yet to be declared.
Nelson Chamisa, of the MDC, and Mnangagwa, of ZANU-PF, were the main contenders in Monday’s vote, the first since former President Robert Mugabe was forced to resign after a de facto coup in November, after nearly 40 years in power.
