Zambia's electoral body and the International Observers have expressed satisfaction with a peaceful voting process amid high voter turnout.
The Electoral Commission of Zambia says reports received from various parts of the country indicate that there was a good voter turnout.
Early this week, the ECZ had expressed concern that the violence that had characterized the run-up to the elections would result in many voters failing to turn up to exercise their right to vote.
Violent clashes between supporters of incumbent President Edgar Lungu and leading opposition challenger Hakainde Hichilema characterized the campaign.
The European Union (EU) Observer team said the high voter turnout indicated that Zambians were eager to exercise their right to choose their leaders.
