JOHANNESBURG, Aug 10 (Reuters) - Zimbabwe's opposition leader Nelson Chamisa wants the Constitutional Court to declare him winner or call fresh elections, his lawyer said on Friday, minutes after filing a court challenge against President Emmerson Mnangagwa's election victory.

According to results from the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, Mnangagwa polled 2.46 million votes against 2.15 million for the 40-year-old Chamisa. The opposition said the result was rigged.
