Zimbabwe's electoral commission says it is waiting to announce the results of the presidential election until the agents of all 23 candidates present themselves and go through a "verification process" with the results forms.

The commission chief says "most of the presidential results are here with us." It is not clear when they will be announced. The commission has five days from Monday's election to announce them.

The opposition has accused the commission of delaying the announcement, and the European Union observer mission has wondered openly why the presidential results were the first counted but the last to be shared publicly.
