I will go with option C .
Were agrees in number with results and use of neither nor is correct as the members of the parliament is plural so usage of were is also correct.

D distorts the meaning.

As the results of the referendum were tallied, neither the prime minister nor the members of parliament were surprised by the anger of the electorate.
