Clemente Engonga Nguema Onguene first provided the number of electoral tables in the country, 1357, and those set up abroad, 40. Also the size of the electorate; 323,954 and 9,268 respectively, from inside and outside our borders. The valid votes from the tables counted would be 40,926, of which the candidate Obiang Nguema Mbasogo would have obtained over 40,600.

As all the international observers have been able to see, the elections have taken place in a climate of peace and tranquillity, meeting all the established legal requirements.

The data provided at the press conference indicates that only 5% of the electoral tables in Malabo, and somewhere over 15% in Bata, have been counted, citing the two cities with the greatest number of electorate.

Finally, Clemente Engonga Nguema Onguene outlined the next events on the electoral calendar. On Monday 25th April the districts will be counted, on Thursday 28th there will be the solemn act of publishing the results, and on Monday 2nd May the President of the Republic will be proclaimed.
