——–Results for Tuesday’s presidential election for Solwezi West Constituency from all the 38 polling stations have been received.
The results delayed due to the long distance from the totalling centre and the bad state of the roads.

Others are UNIP, 63, Fourth Revolution, 52, FDA, eight, CDP four, Heritage Party 49, NAREP 36, MMD 31, FDD 21 and Green Party seven.
