There has been an outcry from some losing candidates who are alleging vote rigging and stuffing of ballot papers.

One of the losing candidates Douglas Mwonzora on Sunday tried to question if the structures of 2014 were going to be allowed to vote according to a National Executive Committee resolution.

Analysts who commented on the results congratulated MDC and said the party had managed to put together a strong team.

Human Rights defender Dr Pedzisayi Ruhwanya said, "The best MDC leadership line up since formation in 1999. Well done Nelson Chamisa for running a credible congress that produced solid and credible leadership. You have shown the world how to run elections; no shenanigans, manipulation etc.

"Those who did not make it in the MDC Congress in Gweru like Dougie, Komichi, Molokela have not lost. How the MDC leadership lead by Nelson Chamisa strategically deploys these people will show the strength of both the leadership and the party. Their contributions are required."
