Provisional results Friday afternoon

At an agonizingly slow pace, Mozambique’s Electoral Administration Technical Secretariat (STAE) is continuing to process the polling station results sheets from Wednesday’s general elections.

As of Friday afternoon, around a third of the results sheets for the presidential election had been processed. These provisional results showed that Filipe Nyusi, the candidate of the ruling Frelimo Party is winning the election with over 60% of the vote.

With 5,720 of the 17,010 polling stations processed (33.63%), the results were as follows:

Filipe Nyusi (Frelimo) – 1,051,921 (61.67%)

Afonso Dhlakama (Renamo) – 526,984 (30.89%)

Daviz Simango (MDM) – 126,877 (7.44%)

The STAE provisional results remain very much in line with the parallel vote tabulation undertaken by the Electoral Observatory, Mozambique’s largest and most credible domestic observer group. The Observatory’s parallel count, from a sample of 2,107 polling stations predicts that Nyusi will win 60.5% of the vote, Dhlakama 32%, and Simango 7.5%.

Broken down by province, the STAE provisional results are as follows:

As for the parliamentary election, the vote tabulation is proceeding at an even slower pace. STAE provided provisional results from only nine of the eleven provincial constituencies. They were as follows:

Cabo Delgado (results from 198 of 1,555 polling stations)

Frelimo – 13,239 (79.79%)
Renamo – 2,693 (16.23%)
MDM – 571 (3.44%)

Nampula (results from 613 of 3,071 polling stations)

Frelimo – 41,645 (53.12%)
Renamo – 31,836 (39.84%)
MDM – 6,338 (7.93%)

Zambezia (results from 325 of 2,935 polling stations)

Frelimo – 35,459 (43.71%)
Renamo – 35,914 (44.27%)

Renamo – 26,339 (38.92%)
MDM – 16,122 (23.82%)

Inhambane (results from 213 of 1,061 polling stations)

Frelimo – 39,782 (77.97%)
Renamo – 8,297 (16.26%)
MDM – 2,625 (4.44%)

Gaza (results from 208 of 1.024 polling stations)

Frelimo – 37,059 (90.17%)
Renamo – 1,790 (4.36%)
MDM – 1,869 (4.55%)

Maputo province (results from 523 of 1,244 polling stations)

Frelimo – 110,777 (77%)
Renamo – 17,204 (11.96%)
MDM – 11,905 (8.28%)

The easiest constituency from which to obtain the polling station results sheets should be Maputo City – yet STAE did not announce any parliamentary results from the capital on Friday.

The above results omit the 27 minor parties who contested the parliamentary elections, who all received derisory numbers of votes and stand no chance of electing anyone to parliament.
