The counting of votes is under way in Malawi’s fiercely contested Presidential and Parliamentary Elections.
The country’s Electoral Commission says it has started receiving results from more than 5,000 polling stations across the country.
This is the first time the results are being transmitted electronically to the National Tally Centre.
Polls have closed across the country and the real test for Malawi’s Electoral Agency has just begun.
These are Malawi’s most unpredictable elections in recent history.
President Peter Mutharika is seeking a second and final term but faces tough opposition from his own Vice President Saulos Chilima and Lazarus Chakwera – a retired evangelist who leads Malawi’s oldest political party.
