The latest official election results show Zimbabwe's ruling party has lost its control of parliament. The results show the opposition Movement for Democratic Change has won 105 seats in the House of Assembly so far, while the ruling party has won 93 seats.

Earlier Wednesday, the opposition claimed outright victory in the presidential election, but the ruling ZANU-PF party rejected that claim.

It said it would await the full results from the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, which has not yet published the outcome of Saturday's presidential race.
