It strikes me it would be a much better system if all the voting took place before any of the counting was done, and all the counting was completed before the results were announced - and only at that stage could there be any question of anyone conceding defeat or claiming victory.

Of course it would take a bit longer, but that's why your system has this long delay before there's a handover to a new administration. What's the hurry?
