From these polling stations, the total number of votes for Conde was 10,473, and for Ferrao 9,547. In Catandica, also in Manica province, it now seems clear that victory has gone to Frelimo.
In 18 of the 23 Catandica polling stations, the Frelimo candidate for mayor, Tome Maibeque, won 3,839 votes (73.9 per cent), while his MDM opponent, won 1,353 votes (26.1 per cent).
As with all results from the polling stations, the figures are provisional and will only become definitive when verified by the National Elections Commission (CNE)Post published in: Africa News
