  1. Cho,
    Can't find anything particularly useful online or on the radio... tips? Or should I just keeping watching ZE!

  2. Yes!

    We are getting good information. For example, I can now confirm that Hon Mutati has lost his seat.

    Big casualty.

    ReplyDelete
  3. ooh, QFM is doing genuinely useful rolling updates forr anyone who can concentrate on constant stream of numbers. Very useful to have it written down though Cho. Alastair

    ReplyDelete
  4. I have just received the current list of PF wins as we know them.

    I will update as we go along.

    ReplyDelete
  5. radio icegelo from coppernet.zm has live updates as well.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Is Kafue confirmed as an MMD loss? I had heard from a source a few days ago that Machila was safe.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Sir, Are you able, please, to create a table with simple tallies so that the picture unfolds clearly as data comes in. Raw figures are hard to digest. Something that will show totals for MPs by party and cumulative counts for the presidential?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Significant changes here are PF wins in Mkushi North and Kapiri where MMD won by a huge margins in 2006 and this is despite two bumper harvests and $80/ton maize subsidy. Book your tickets home- lets rebuild the mess!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sir,

    please update on livingstone central update as i heard PF is leading
    just to conquer with my friend, kindly create a grapgh for all parties

    ReplyDelete
  10. @APPG,

    That was days ago...

    Zambians are very respectful. They will give you air time and let you talk as much as you can. But after you gone, they pass the verdict.

    This is what seems to have happened to Rupiah.

    lol!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Anonymous,

    I'll see if we can create some tables.

    ReplyDelete
  12. We really appreciate your updates. Please keep it up.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Keep up the good work chaps. Being in the UK I was struggling to get any valuable information until a friend in USA sent me the link.

    ReplyDelete
  14. This forum sounds for sure supporting PF. It is trying by all means to demean other political parties taking part in these elections. I think it is not an encouraging source to get information

    ReplyDelete
  15. Alphoncious H,

    We will keep updating these results. Please be patient.

    Once we get confirmed MMD and UPND results they will be updated.

    We are merely providing a service. We are not infallible.

    If you have credible source - simply provide and we will check.

    Thanks,

    ReplyDelete
  16. Alphoncious H. How did you end up with that conclusion? It's clear this forum is only passing on information as it gets it. We can all see that its looking bleak, so far that is for ruling party. But clearly it's a long way to go.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Obviously it is too early to say. The obvious logic is that the earliest results come from PF domains, which are more urban. We still have 75% of the areas unaccounted for here. By the way, Western Province is more UPND than PF. PF seems to have taken Mongu central but UPND has the rest - except for one constituency for ADD.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sounds like Chavuma is MMD

    ReplyDelete
  19. bwana Zambian economist, Mwansabombwe is appearing twice, so counter check and give the correct standing

    ReplyDelete
  20. QFM is on the case quite well

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Anonymous, thanks!

    Sasha,

    What have you got?

    ReplyDelete
  22. MMD has scooped Chongwe, Chipata and Petauke.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm live streaming QFM from http://player.streamtheworld.com/liveplayer.php?CALLSIGN=Q_FM

    Will post updates, if I can catch them

    ReplyDelete
  24. Just monitoring QFM and #zambiaelections on Twitter - confirmed (well we hear!) Chavuma, Feira to MMD, and Nchanga to PF by a factor of 10...

    Keep it up!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Anonymous,

    We have not confirmed the Chongwe and Chipata results. Same with the CB rural seats. But these do appear to have been captured by MMD.

    We are taking some care!

    ReplyDelete
  26. update on the stats, MMD stands at 3 and UPND 3 if am following you correctly

    ReplyDelete
  27. Remember that we are all Zambians and let us not take comments or these posted results personally,let us wait and see facts are facts let us receive results as they come

    ReplyDelete
  28. Please recheck the Lunte for bo Mutati?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Will check Lunte again. But I have been told Bo Mutati has lost. Will check! I will highlight it in blue.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sir, One more favour, if table is still in the making. How about separation of results into provinces and sorted in alphabetic order? Not too much I hope. Thank you for your service. Let's start planning for 2016.

    ReplyDelete
  35. well Bo Pandawe, better look for a un zambian radio station might help

    ReplyDelete
  36. Is Dora OK? Any information about her well being?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks for the updates....well done guys and keep it come please. Really good work!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanx for the info. Keep them coming

    ReplyDelete
  39. Re Dora Siliya, I am reading unconfirmed reports on Twitter that MMD has retained Petauke.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Sorry - am I reading right that Kanyama has gone to PF? Wasn't it a safe UPND seat before?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Twitter says MMD takes Mpongwe

    ReplyDelete
  42. Compare to previous election, PF is getting a stronger trend? or too early to say?

    ReplyDelete
  43. kanyama seat was pf and has been retained

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Anonymous the trend seems to be stronger turnout for PF (where they hold)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanks - is a while since I was there...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Kanyama... did they even manage to vote?

    Mpongwe was strongly MMD. The question is, has Sata improved his numbers there? It all adds up...

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hon Mutati definitely lost Lunte. This is confirmed by very reliable sources.

    ReplyDelete
  48. What about Mutati and Shikapwasha

    ReplyDelete
  49. Masebo, Mangani and Mwanawasa have lost. We have reflected that in the results.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Sata looks set to comfortably breach the 50% threshold. May be we don't need 50%+1

    ReplyDelete
  51. Sata's share will be greater than the proportion of PF MPs because of higher turnout in PF strongholds, coupled with a strong performance in their weak areas.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Only the easterners appreciated Dora's sex campaign.

    ReplyDelete
  53. No word yet from my home town of Nchelenge in Luapula province!

    ReplyDelete
  54. What of Livingstone, they should have counted by now?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Whats the latest with Mabenga my chairman and my friend Namugala in Mafinga?

    ReplyDelete
  56. ZNBC in flatspin- playing solemn music on tv now! ditto 1991. It's all over bar the shouting. tricks won't work anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Going by past elections in Africa, I suggest its too early for PF to celebrate. In typical African fashion, early results usually show the opposition leading, then suddenly later in the day, the incumbent party takes a sudden lead to the end. Just like the Ethiopian marathon runners in the last 100metres. I am a Kenyan, I should know. In 2007, the ODM party was leading till 18:00hrs, then the incumbent PNU took a sudden lead. I wont be surprised if the same happens in Zambia culminating in a night swearing in of the President.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Haha Rolf... Don't jump the gun with the beers. I'm going to wait til after work at least ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  59. My friend says the reason is so that the incumbent Party can know how to doctor the figures!

    ReplyDelete
  60. ECZ finally updating on ZNBC apparently

    ReplyDelete
  61. The only issue that is misleading here is that parliamentary wins are not the same as presidential votes...so don't assume PF will have the votes for president based on this..

    ReplyDelete
  62. @Anonymous the margins are higher this time

    ReplyDelete
  63. what about Mongu Central?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Please confirm Katuba coz Tufweko.com is saying its gone to UPND

    ReplyDelete
  65. We have checked on Katuba twice already! Will do so again!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Mongu = PF. Am hearing trouble at Lusaka Civic Centre with the presidential digital results going to ECZ with 17 polling stations omitted

    ReplyDelete
  67. yes indeed trouble at civic center

    ReplyDelete
  68. we will finally see a change of political system!

    NOW


    - foreign groups will have to pay

    - foreign groups will have to give to ZCCM-IH its benefits

    otherwise it must expel all these thugs!

    a lot of others companies want to come in Zambia

    it will be better for our children !

    ReplyDelete
  118. Anonymous,

    ECZ does not have the Parliamentary breakdown.

    It only has the Presidential. Also it does not say REALLY CLOSE.

    It gives a gap of 140,000 between PF and MMD with 17 constituencies to go. But we don't know what these constituencies are.

    Please provide the figures if you have them.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Poll tally visuals, folks: http://www.lusakatimes.com/2011/09/21/zambias-2011-elections-results/

  120. Official figure show Sata has an unassailable lead. With 133 constituencies reporting Sata has a lead of 140,000 over Rupiah History Bwezani Banda: http://www.elections.org.zm/results.php

    ReplyDelete
  121. From the horse's mouth:

    http://www.elections.org.zm/results.php

    Sata has an unassailable lead

    ReplyDelete
  122. I am a zambian abroad, and I have found it very helpful that you are updating the world on what is happening back home. But could you update us as to what constituencies are still to be announced?

    ReplyDelete
  123. ZE, I've heard that Nakonde Parliamentary polls have been postponed. Have you verified the Nakonde seat attributed to MMD above?

    ReplyDelete
  124. Mutati won his seat. Please revise.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I do not think that we can assume that all votes from "reporting" constituencies are all accounted for. Some, like Munali are showing only 17% turnout tallied, enough to call seat for Prof Luo perhaps, but not enough to fully bulk out eventual presidential totals. In other words, just because parliamentary candidates are being declared winners does not mean constituency in question has been fully counted. If we had a decent guess at approx. total turnout then we would have a better idea of how close these constituencies are to presenting final tallies for presidential race.

    ReplyDelete
  126. What of Lufwanya.Have you got the results.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I have observed something with your posts.
    You dont show whether these results pertain to presidential or Paliamentary.
    If you look at the ECZ results, we are remaining with only 17 constituencies to find out who the winer is. Please could you try to give fair comments and open personal opinions. It will be of no use to keep pipo expectant, this could cause heart breaks. I know that these guys are dribling yet again.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Zambian Economist is posting the results for Parliamentary elections ONLY, hence the count against each party.

    ReplyDelete
  129. mambilima has gone to pf please update

    ReplyDelete
  130. Parliamentary results are on the ECZ site and show for eg Mkushi north going to MMD. Who's results are incorrect? Voter turnout on ECZ site seems low too?

    ReplyDelete
  136. ECZ has shut down the website for the same reason. Lets stick with the Parliamentary count.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Let's stick with the Zambian Economist... you've not been hacked right?! :-s

  143. Results appear credible. Just cross checked with lusaka times.

    ReplyDelete
  144. ECZ website hacked.

    ReplyDelete
  145. The Electoral commission of Zambia website has been hacked and taken over by some unknown ‘engineers’.

    The unknown ‘engineers’ but believed to be from the PF are posting fake presidential results on the website www.elections.org.zm

    The ECZ has confirmed the ‘take over’ and is expected to issue a statement to denounce the results being displayed.

    The fake results are similar to the ones publicized by PF Secretary General Wynter Kabimba at a press briefing Wednesday evening where he said Michael Sata will win by 56 per cent.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Sata nawina please, relinquish your power for the sake of the peace that you had been advocating for before, during and now after the elections.

    ReplyDelete
  151. ECZ has apparently regained control over their site but are not yet reporting updated results for any contest. Veracity of any previously reported results are clearly questionable at this point, due to alleged insertion of potentially false numbers which have nonetheless been reported as "confirmed" by various persons/media due to their presence on the ECZ website earlier. Likely at this stage that ECZ will be quick to deny all current numbers circulating in the press, and slow to release official numbers (possibly not until all constituencies have reported fully). I empathize with frustration, but advise patience nevertheless.

  152. Mambilima s' briefing: From 33 constituencies Sata has about 46.5%, RB about 33.8% i didnt get figures for HH. Next briefing from her will be tomorrow. She has confirmed that the results on the website are fake and that they have shut down the results page

    ReplyDelete
  153. O k here we go… latest verified results by ECZ from 33 constituencies Sata 265,843 and RB 192,166. Game still very much on!

    ReplyDelete
  154. The hacking of the website could also be a ploy by MMD to make us believe that only the official ECZ are accurate and thus we might just accept even fake results. I dont know who is reliable anymore. All our media houses have lost credibility.

  155. If you really believe in God Chola, make sure you pray for God to do what's best for the Zambian people, instead of praying for the result that YOU want to see! The classic err of mankind...

  156. We are being laughed at by other countries, this is the waste of time and tax payers money if we cant conduct transparent elections and be seen to have an independent body to conduct credible elections.Shame

  157. Hi Ze, kindly correct Sesheke, PF (Siyanga) - 4,706, MMD (Kufwakandi) 3,500. Source: people on the ground and Mulabasa (znbc)

    ReplyDelete
  158. Sesheke has 18179 registered voters, not questioning veracity of your numbers or party ratio, but under 9000 votes sounds like low turnout perhaps. Does that agree with persons on the ground impressions from yesterday? I am curious because trying to get an idea of how many ballots we should be expecting nationwide/regionally vs registered voters. Thanks!

  159. Does anyone trust the ECZ anymore. Why should i trust them now when they ran around in circles dodging the UPG scandal? people easily forget huh?

  163. demn.MMD....Stop cheating.

  164. From the look of things: misrepresentation of Constituencies, Uncertainty of winners in certain Constituencies despite people on ground, clumsiness of PVT, hacking of ECZ website to correlate with PF Sec press briefing, ZE and all bloggers have been taken for a ride. WE want the true results and NOT doctored, fake results being propagated by desperate politicians and their equally gullible supporters!!

    ReplyDelete
  165. if the MMD was leading ECZ wasn't going to say they are wrong results. Those were the right results. They are taking us for a ride

    ReplyDelete
  166. ZE be serious, how many Chembes do we have 1 4 PF and another 4 MMD. correct that.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Whether ECZ says the results are wrong when MMD is not leading is NOT the point. We should ask ourselves, what is the True position. Veracity of the truth is paramount. There has NOT been any contradiction from any of the Political parties on the declared 33 Constituencies to date. This signifies that all are agreed with each of the ECZ official results.

  168. ZE UPND has scooped sesheke check ZNBC website. Siyanga ia UPND

    ReplyDelete
  169. ZNBC at its best the news is about Mambilima 's statements and nothing about results. i thought results are headline news. what a shame live in a lower middle income country

    ReplyDelete
  170. And so ZAMBIAN ECONOMIST [read Chola] elects to remove my critical post, lol!

    Thanks, for revealing your allergies to criticism.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Sasha, I am aware of the various biases of mainstream Zambian media, which is why the source of the numbers is being included. I know many are eager for updates and info, and this trickle of unconfirmed reports is not terribly satisfying, but its what there is to pass along at this time. I believe that Cho has taken a couple of hours for a previous commitment, but we can expect him to return reasonably soon and update us with what may have come through the email pipeline recently. I am sure that patience is appreciated!

  178. Hello,

    I was at Bible Study and Prayer Meeting.
    I am just getting back. It will take time to review where we are.

    Please be patient.

    Thanks to all friends and foes alike. We are all in this together.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Sure Yakima I was just making sure people know and I appreciate you sharing... It's just I am getting all kinds of numbers now from all kinds of sources. Let us be patient indeed

    ReplyDelete
  180. BY ZE WAY AS WE THANK U FOR THE UPDATE BUT THIS TM AROUND WE NEED AN ACTUAL CHANGE TO GOVERNANCE.NO VIOLENCE IS TOLERATED OF COURSE BUT CHANGE.

    ReplyDelete
  181. This is what I'm getting from someone who won't share the source:

    "69 verified constituencies - PF 605,000.00, MMD 395,000.00. Majority being on CB, NP, LP, and LSK. Percentage difference at 69 4.02%"

    ReplyDelete
  182. Probably nonsense given the round numbers ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  183. Will start with the corrections and then update new results when we have checked with the sources.

    ReplyDelete
  184. Sesheke is now corrected - UPND and no longer blue.

    ReplyDelete
  185. Someone is disputing Kabompo West result. This is now blue under UPND.

    Sinda is deleted.

    Chembe is a MMD win.

    I am not sure why people are crying about results. We have indicated were uncertainty exists. Obvious mistakes will be corrected.

    It does not matter what ECZ have published. Their figures WILL CONVERGE with ours. We are obviously ahead of ECZ.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Thanks for the hard work Zambian Economist, it's essential to have these independent results

    ReplyDelete
  187. looks like all roads lead to ZE, especially for us in the diaspora. only independent site publishing consolidated figures with regular updates. obviously a slight PF bias (sasha wouldn't be here lol!) but overall you're doing an excellent job. thanks

    ReplyDelete
  188. And if ECZ results don't converge with yours, you will scream RIGGING?

  189. Thanks, Sasha

    What is your fundamental question?
    I prefer to deal with real questions not insinuations. I am too busy for that.
