The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has explained the delay in announcing election resultcentre that has been set up at Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka.
ECZ Public Relations Manager, Cris Akufuna explained this morning that the Commission has not yet received consolidated results from any of the 150 constituencies in Zambia. ZANIS reports that Mr. Akufuna said the ECZ has however received results from some totalling centres from around the country but not the general total results from constituencies. He said results are announced only when total results from a particular constituency have been received and added.
The ECZ Official also explained the delay to local election monitors, international election observers, civil society organisations, church representatives, political parties and the local and foreign media that have been eagerly waiting for results at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre since yesterday.
However, Mr. Akufuna assured the country that elections results will be announced as soon as totals from constituencies have been received by the centre.
