Emmerson Mnangagwa, the President of Zimbabwe, has secured victory in the 2023 presidential election.

According to the announcement by the electoral commission, Mr. Mnangagwa has been reelected for a second term with 52.6% of the total votes cast.

“Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa of the ZANU-PF party has been officially declared the elected president of the Republic of Zimbabwe,” stated Chigumba, the chairperson of the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, during a press conference.

Nelson Chamisa, the main competitor against Mnangagwa, reportedly garnered 44% of the votes as per the electoral commission’s reports.

The election took place on Wednesday, and its integrity has been criticized by various international election observer missions and diplomatic representatives, including the US and the EU Mission, who have pointed out shortcomings.

The Citizens’ Coalition for Change, an opposition group led by Chamisa, expressed its dissatisfaction through a social media post on platform X, stating their rejection of “any hastily compiled results lacking proper verification.”
