Zimbabwe's electoral commission says it expects to start announcing election results from 15:00 on Tuesday.

Commission chief Priscilla Chigumba says most of the nearly 11 000 polling stations have completed vote-counting and that a verification process is underway. She says "the atmosphere has remained peaceful" across the country and that she has not received any major complaints about how Monday's election was conducted.

Chigumba says the electoral commission has five days to release the final tally and expects to do so within that time period.

She says she is confident there was no "cheating" and says the electoral commission will respect the will of Zimbabweans.

"We will not steal their choice of leaders, we will not subvert their will," Chigumba says.
