Abdullah Tops Afghan Presidential Vote’s 1st Count
Preliminary results in Afghanistan’s presidential election show former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah won the most votes but not the majority needed to avoid a runoff. The chairman of the Independent Election Commission said Saturday that Abdullah had 44.9 percent of the vote and ex-Finance Minister Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai came in second with 31.5 percent. Electoral law requires a runoff between the top two candidates if no one candidate gets a majority.
