On April 26, the Afghan Independent Election Commission (IEC) announced the preliminary results of the April 5 presidential elections, with Dr Abdullah Abdullah in the lead with 44.9 per cent of the votes, followed by Dr Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai who obtained 31.5 per cent and Dr Zalmai Rassoul with 11.5 per cent. To secure an outright victory, a candidate must win more than 50 per cent of all valid ballots. As of now, it looks nearly improbable for Abdullah Abdullah to get to the 50 per cent mark and a run-off looks imminent, which is likely to take place on May 28.
