Afghan leader Mohammad Ashraf Ghani won the election held in September this year.  According to the preliminary result of the independent election commission, the 70-year-old politician has a narrow absolute majority with 50.64 percent of the vote, as the TV broadcaster “Tolo News” reported on Sunday. Ghani’s opponent Abdullah Abdullah therefore only received 39.52 percent votes.

This would clear the way for a second term of Ashraf Ghani. However, Abdullah and his team have already stated that they will not recognize the result of the vote.

The announcement of the election results was repeatedly delayed because Abdullah’s side had asked for recounting in dozens of electoral districts.

Ashraf Ghani and 59-year-old Abdullah had formed a unified government after the chaotic 2014 election at the instigation of the United States. It is unclear to what extent the final result of the election will be delayed further.

Abdullah has announced that 7,000 complaints will be examined by the election complaints commission. A new dispute over the election result could further destabilize the political situation in Afghanistan.

In early December, the United States resumed negotiations with the Taliban on peace in the HinduKush that ended three months ago . The conflict has now lasted 18 years.
