Parallel count projects majority to Filipe Nyusi
The parallel count of the votes in last Wednesday’s Mozambican general elections still gives the ruling Frelimo Party and its presidential candidate Filipe Nyusi a substantial lead over their main rivals, Renamo and its candidate Afonso Dhlakama.

The parallel count is undertaken by the Electoral Observatory, the largest and most credible group of Mozambican election observers. The Observatory is drawing up its parallel count from 2,107 of the 17,010 polling stations.

The count has now reached 84% of the sample, and the latest projection is as follows:

Presidential election

Filipe Nyusi (Frelimo)              58%
Afonso Dhlakama (Renamo)    35%
Daviz Simango (MDM)              8%

Parliamentary election

Frelimo                  57%
Renamo                 32%
MDM                      10%
Minor parties            2%

Assuming that Frelimo wins the two seats in the diaspora, as it has done in previous elections, the parallel count predicts the future composition of the Mozambican parliament, the Assembly of the Republic, to be as follows:

Frelimo        143 seats
Renamo        82 seats
MDM             25 seats.

At this stage of the parallel count, these figures are unlikely to change by more than two per cent. The parallel counts undertaken by the Observatory in previous Mozambican elections have proved remarkably accurate.
