Abdullah leads in new partial results from Afghan presidential election


KABUL, Afghanistan – The latest partial results in Afghanistan's presidential election show front-runner Abdullah still leading but far from the majority needed to avoid a runoff.

Abdullah Abdullah, a former foreign minister, had 43.8 percent of the vote in results released Thursday. His closest rival, ex-Finance Minister Ashaf Ghani Ahmadzai, had 32.9 percent. The results were based on 82.6 percent of the more than 7 million votes cast in the April 5 election to replace President Hamid Karzai, who is ineligible for a third term.
