HARARE (Reuters) - The Zimbabwe electoral commission (ZEC) said on Thursday it would call a news conference to say when the presidential results could be announced, saying media reports that the results would be released at 9 pm (1900 GMT) were inaccurate.

Qubani Moyo, a ZEC commissioner, told reporters the electoral agency would give greater clarity on the timing of the release of the presidential election results at a press conference to be held at around 5 pm local time (1500 GMT).

Deputy ZEC chairman Emmanuel Magade assured Zimbabwean citizens that there was “absolutely no skulduggery” in this week’s presidential election.
