PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
TIZ CLARIFIES ITS PARRALEL VOTER TABULATION SYSTEM FOR THE 2015 PRESIDENTIAL RESULTS
 
TIZ wishes to reiterate its position that it deployed monitors in a number of polling stations in the 150 constituencies, primarily at collation centers. It is our intention as TIZ to share information as we receive it from constituencies that have been duly declared by the Electoral Commission of Zambia for the purpose of promoting transparency in these presidential elections.
Against this background, we wish to underscore that we have not speculated any PVT results today and instead we have been relaying on the officially declared results from constituencies. We want to advise members of the public not to be misled by any wrong statements attributed to TIZ. We advise all members of the public interested in the TIZ Parallel Voter Tabulation (PVT) to visit both our website www.tizambia.org.zm and Facebook page Transparency International Zambia (www.facebook.com/tizambia) for correct factual information. We want to confirm our position that it is only the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) that will officially declare the results of the presidential elections. We want to appeal to Zambians to remain patient and await for ECZ’s declaration.
