Washington, DC — The final results for Lesotho's general election are expected to be released on Tuesday, 29 May, AFP reports.
Voting tallies began after the polls closed on Saturday evening.
Election official, Maliako Ralejoe, said: "Currently most of the urban areas have been counted, which is a good indicator.
"We have had challenges with the rural areas as some areas are still counting, but Maseru is complete. We estimate that Tuesday we will be able to announce the final verdict," Ralejoe told AFP.
According to the Lesotho Times, the opposition, All Basotho Convention, currently leads after winning 24 out of 57 constituencies.
Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili's Democratic Congress follows with 20 seats while the former ruling Lesotho Congress for Democracy is third with 12 seats.
Finalising results from mountain communities may be challenging due to Lesotho being a largely rural nation.
