Preliminary Results For Parliamentary Polls Underway

Rwanda’s electoral body NEC is yet to announce results from the just concluded voting in parliamentary elections.

The electoral body said by the end of voting on Monday, it would release provisional results and the final results will be announced later after tallying all votes cast across the country.

Political parties have been racing against each other in pursuit of votes to get a share on 53 of the 80 seats in parliament.

Other parties have to keep their fingures crossed as the Rwanda Patriotic Front Party controls majority of seats in parliament.

Meanwhile, the other 27 seats are spared for women, youth and the disabled and they are elected by special councils and national committees.

Across the country, voters arrived at polling stations much earlier to choose their favourites by use of secret ballots.
