Zimbabwe elections: Emmerson Mnangagwa declared winner as opposition denounces 'fake' results

Zimbabwe elections: Emmerson Mnangagwa declared winner as opposition denounces 'fake' resultsZimbabwe's Emmerson Mnangagwa has secured a narrow victory in Zimbabwe's first election since the dictator Robert Mugabe was overthrown last year.  Mr Mnangagwa took 50.8 percent of the vote, obtaining by a whisker the 50 percent plus one vote majority required to avoid a second round run off, Zimbabwe's election commission announced in Harare late on Thursday night.  Nelson Chamisa, his nearest challenger, took 44.3 percent of the vote.  Mr Mnangagwa said he was "humbled", hailing the victory as a "new beginning". "Thank you Zimbabwe! I am humbled to be elected President of the Second Republic of Zimbabwe," he said in a Twitter message. Thank you Zimbabwe! I am humbled to be elected President of the Second Republic of Zimbabwe. Though we may have been divided at the polls, we are united in our dreams. This is a new beginning. Let us join hands, in peace, unity & love, & together build a new Zimbabwe for all! pic.twitter.com/FbdrixAktR— President of Zimbabwe (@edmnangagwa) August 2, 2018 Mr Mnangagwa's victory makes him Zimbabwe’s second elected president and puts a stamp of legitimacy on his rule, which began with a military coup to oust Mr Mugabe, who had ruled the country for 37 years.  But it was immediately challenged by the opposition, whose allegations of voter fraud have raised fears of a renewal of post election violence.  Opposition MDC spokesman Morgan Komichi denounced the results, saying the count was "fake". "The results that have been announced have not been verified by us… so the results are fake," said Komichi, before he was removed by police from the stage at the official results announcement in Harare.

Soldiers and police cleared the city centre, shouting at pedestrians and traders to leave, as the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) continued to charge that the ruling ZANU-PF had stolen the election. "What they have been trying to do of late is to play around," MDC leader Nelson Chamisa told reporters. "That is rigging, that is manipulation, trying to bastardise the result, and that we will not allow." The government has accused the MDC of inciting Wednesday's unrest and vowed to enforce a security clampdown. Soldiers stood guard at ZANU-PF headquarters on Thursday, while armoured personnel carriers, water cannon trucks and police anti-riot vans took position outside MDC headquarters. Zimbabwean's main opposition candidate Nelson Chamisa speaks at a news conference in Harare, Zimbabwe Credit: AP Monday's vote was meant to turn the page on years of brutal repression under Mugabe. It has pitted 75-year-old President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Mugabe's former ZANU-PF ally, against Chamisa, 35 years his junior. While the government warned that further protests would not be tolerated, Mnangagwa also said on Twitter that he wanted an independent investigation into the killings, and that he sought to settle differences "peacefully". It is also more important than ever that we are united, and commit to settling our differences peacefully and respectfully, and within the confines of the law. 4/6— President of Zimbabwe (@edmnangagwa) August 2, 2018 But Chamisa racheted up the pressure, accusing the government of turning tanks and guns on voters, and ruling out the prospect of a unity government. "No unity government. There has to a government of the people elected by the people," he told reporters. In official results from the parliamentary election, also held on Monday, ZANU-PF won easily – suggesting Mnangagwa would be on course to retain the presidency. Mnangagwa had promised a free and fair vote after the military ushered him to power when Mugabe was forced to resign. A credible and peaceful vote was meant to end Zimbabwe's international isolation and attract foreign investment to revive the shattered economy.

Erdogan declared winner of Turkey presidential polls

Erdogan declared winner of Turkey presidential pollsTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has won tightly-contested presidential polls, the election authority said Monday, extending his 15-year grip on power as the opposition complained bitterly about the conduct of the vote count. Turkish voters had for the first time cast ballots for both president and parliament in the snap elections, with Erdogan looking for a first round knockout and an overall majority for his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). The stakes were particularly high as the new president will be the first to enjoy enhanced powers, without even a prime minister, under a new constitution agreed in an April 2017 referendum strongly backed by Erdogan but which opponents say grants autocratic powers.
