Former finance minister ahead in Afghan presidential election, preliminary results show

Bishkek (AKIpress) - afp Preliminary results from June 14 Afghan presidential runoff vote indicate former finance minister Ashraf Ghani is ahead of his rival candidate Abdullah Abdullah, who topped the first round of voting.

The results were supposed to be announced last week but recounts at nearly 2,000 polling stations where fraud was alleged forced the Afghan Independent Election Commission to delay them for few days, according to the media reports.

Commission chief Ahmad Yousuf Nouristani said that more than 8 million Afghans voted in the runoff election and that over 56 percent of the tally went to Ashraf Ghani while his rival Abdullah Abdullah received approximately 44 percent.

Chief election commissioner cautioned against drawing any conclusions at this stage.
