Nelson Chamisa on Friday said the country’s electoral commission should release “proper and verified” results of the first national election since Robert Mugabe left office.
The commission earlier declared President Emmerson Mnangagwa the winner of the ballot.
In comments referring to the commission, Chamisa said on his Twitter page that “the level of opaqueness, truth deficiency, moral decay & values deficit is baffling.”
He charged that the ZEC had denied his Movement for Democratic Change party access to the results before the announcement that Mnangagwa had won by the narrowest margin of 50.8%.
The ZEC scandal of releasing unverified fake results is regrettable.ZEC denied our election agent access to results be4 announcement.ZEC must release proper & verified results endorsed by parties.The level of opaqueness, truth deficiency, moral decay & values deficit is baffling.

Morgan Komichi, the Chairman of the MDC Alliance, further claimed that the results were not real and that they still had to be verified. Police officials had to remove the losing opposition party off the stage.
Mnangagwa, a former ally of Robert Mugabe who replaced the long-ruling autocrat in November after a brief military intervention, has hailed his victory as a “new beginning” for Zimbabwe.
