IEBC to only announce final presidential results
Electoral body IEBC will only announce the final presidential election results after receiving vote tallies from all the 290 constituencies countrywide and collating them.
This is according to IEBC Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba, who said the commissioners will announce periodic results from each constituency as has been the norm in past polls.
Speaking at the Bomas presidential tallying center while briefing broadcast media technical teams, Chiloba however clarified IEBC will relay live results from constituencies as received in real time.
Chiloba has urged media houses and political parties to leave declaration of presidential results to IEBC for order, saying all backup mechanisms are being set up to ensure a free, fair and credible vote.
