After 5 months delay, Afghanistan Election Commission announces Final Results of Presidential election

*KABUL - **After 5 months delay, Afghanistan Election Commission announces Final Results of Presidential election.*

*Ashraf Ghani has secured a second term as president of Afghanistan, according to final results of the September 28, 2019 poll released Tuesday by the country’s election commission.*

“The election commission… declares Mr Ashraf Ghani, who has won 50.64 percent of the votes, as the president of Afghanistan,” election commission chief Hawa Alam Nuristani told a press conference in Kabul.

The results had been delayed for nearly five months after allegations of vote-rigging from Ghani’s main rival, Abdullah Abdullah, forced a recount. - APP / AFP
