Nine days after the parliamentary polls, the Central Election Commission has certified the final election results for all counties.

On a meeting held on Tuesday, CEC representatives reviewed and later confirmed the results for 11 counties, apart from the results in Kukes which were certified since Friday.

Despite wide contestations from the Democratic Party, the Socialist Movement for Integration, and several independent candidates, the outcome from the polls is 74 parliamentary seats for the SP, 59 to DP and allies, 4 for SMI, and 3 for the SDP.

The parliament will be constituted on the 9 of September.
