Zimbabwe elections results: Who is leading in Zimbabwe election? Will Chamisa win?

She also said the commission is happy that voting went on well around the country, however noting that 1,3% of registered voters were turned away for various reasons.

"The reasons ranged from defaced identity cards, invalid documents or wrong ones altogether".

The President had time to chat with the polling officers, inquiring on how many people were allocated to vote at the polling station.

The EU had not yet concluded how to judge the vote, he said.

Both Mnangagwa and Chamisa, the two leading contenders in a field of 23 presidential candidates, held large final rallies in Harare on Saturday. "Waiting patiently for official results as per the constitution", Mnangagwa tweeted on Tuesday.

Zec head Priscilla Chigumba said 90% of polling stations had opened on time.

When will the results come in?

"The matters have been referred to the police for investigation for possible violation of the law", she said.

Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe, who was ousted by the military in November, made a surprise intervention on Sunday (Jul 29) on the eve of key elections, calling for voters to throw his old party out of office.

"How long are we supposed to wait for things to get better?" Real change is coming.

"We need change because we have suffered a lot here", 65-year-old Mable Mafaro said while voting in Harare.

Earlier, Chamisa had, through his lawyer Thabani Mpofu, declared that he would not accept any election result where he was not the victor.

Mnangagwa has insisted the election will be credible. I have said it before and will say it again.

Mr Mnangagwa denied Mr Mugabe's claim that the vote would not be free since it was being run by a "military government".

Zimbabwe's generals shocked the world past year when they seized control and ushered Mnangagwa into power after Mugabe allegedly groomed his wife to succeed him.

"I just have to do this. I wish to meet him if he wins", Mugabe said of the lawyer. Chamisa, a charismatic speaker who honed his craft in the courtroom and the pulpit, is winning over young and unemployed voters who are frustrated with almost four decades of Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) rule.

This might bring former vice president Joice Mujuru and her People's Rainbow Coalition Party into play. "I will make my choice among the other 22 (candidates) but it is a long list", he added at a press conference in Harare. I will choose from the 22 (minus Mnangagwa).

The 94 year-old added: "I can not vote for those who tormented me... I say no, no, no!" he said.

The ZEC was not immediately available to comment.

European Union and U.S. election monitors have been allowed into the country for the first time in 16 years to assess whether the elections are free and fair. They are very, very, very wrong on the law, so I'm not interested.

Chamisa dismissed Zec's threats as a legal nullity and meant to intimidate him.

Who is the opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa?

He lingered in his cardboard voting booth, his daughter at his elbow, and placed his three ballots carefully in their boxes. "Zec is expected to take appropriate action", Charamba said. It has been a hotly contested race but there is an air of optimism unlike the nervousness I've witnessed covering previous elections here.
