Zimbabwe’s vote-counting process will be more drawn out than other countries and the process will take almost a week.
Official results of the voting will be released this Saturday on August 4, but a likely winner could be known as early as July 2.
If a candidate is unable to secure over a 50 percent majority in the vote counts, a presidential ‘runoff’ will be held a month later on September 8.
The runoff will see only two candidates from a first round of voting progress to a one-on-one voting battle for the majority.
Vote counting for Zimbabwe officially began when polls closed at 7pm (5pm GMT) today.
The latest vote has been hailed as a game-changer, as the country has a chance to move away from divisions caused by Robert Mugabe.
With the country potentially returning to the international fold, election observers from both the European Union and United States were allowed to monitor progress.
It is believed that one of two candidates will take the top spot as president, either current President Emerson Mnangagwa or Nelson Chamisa.
