Election Special, 4th December 2004


Election results as of 14.00 Saturday

Maputo, 4 Dec (AIM) - According to the polling station results broadcast by Radio Mozambique, as of 14.00 on Saturday, the presidential candidate of the ruling Frelimo Party, Armando Guebuza, now has two and a half times as many votes as his main opponent, Afonso Dhlakama, leader of Renamo.

The gap between the two men is now so wide that it seems impossible for Dhlakama to win. It is true that much of rural Sofala, a Renamo stronghold, is not included in the radio count - but neither is much of Cabo Delgado which is a province traditionally dominated by Frelimo. Much of Nampula is also missing, but this is a province fiercely contested by the two parties, with coastal areas tending to vote for Renamo, and much of the interior for Frelimo.

The following table consists exclusively of results announced by Radio Mozambique:
