Afghanistan Presidential Election Final Result 2014
KABUL: The final result of the presidential election held in Afghanistan over a month ago will be announced on Thursday, the country’s Independent Election Commission (IEC) said, delaying the announcement by a day.
Preliminary results late last month showed no candidate emerging with an absolute majority which, if confirmed by the final results, will lead to a run-off between the two leading contenders, former foreign minister Abdullah Abdullah and ex-World Bank economist Ashraf Ghani.
According to the preliminary count Abdullah finished top with 44.9 percent, followed by Ghani with 31.5 percent, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) said.
“Tomorrow at 11 am (0630 GMT) the IEC will announce the final result,” said IEC spokesman Noor Mohammad Noor.
