Zimbabwe presidential results 'from 22:00'

Zimbabwe's electoral commission says it will start announcing the results of the presidential election "from 22:00"

The announcement comes after international election observers urged the release of the results as soon as possible, saying delays will increase speculation that results were manipulated.

The commission by law has five days from Monday's vote to announce the results. Both observers and the opposition have asked why presidential results were counted first but are being released last.
