As well as electing a president, Zimbabweans were voting for 210 members of parliament and more than 9,000 councillors.
Final results are due by 4 August.

So far, the commission had received returns from four provinces and was awaiting results from the remaining six.
Counting has been completed in Matabeleland South, Masvingo and Bulawayo while in Mashonaland Central, 98% of the results have been received.
In Harare 75% of the votes have been finalised while in Manicaland 56%, has been completed.
In Midlands, counting is expected to be completed by midday.
She added that an average 1 percent of voters had been turned away for various reasons.

“The commission would like to urge Zimbabweans to be patient as we wait for results.
“All stakeholders are reminded from announcing results as that is the prerogative of the commission,” she said.
