All available data from Mozambican elections from 1999 through to 2014 is in this archive. Election results are in a variety of formats and different levels of detail, for most elections down to polling station (700-1000 voters) level, as published by the National Elections Commission (CNE). In addition there are some Constitutional Council rulings which contain results, some parallel vote tabulations (PVTs), and official lists of polling stations, which follow the official results.
Background to the election newsletters. In a system developed in three pairs of municipal and national elections (2003-4, 2008-9, 2013-4), journalists from community radio and other local media, while continuing to work for their own organisation, also report to a national daily newsletter on registration, campaigning, voting and counting. Reports of local violence and misconduct are quickly reported nationally, usually bringing rapid responses.
