Guebuza leads in Moz vote

2009-11-02 09:27
Maputo - Incumbent President Armando Guebuza leads in Mozambique's elections by a wide margin, with more than 80% of votes counted.

Results so far give Guebuza more than 76% of the presidential vote, and his Frelimo party between 75 and 80% of parliament's 250 seats.

Lucas Jose, a National Elections Commission spokesperson, said on Sunday it may take more than a week for remaining results to come in from remote regions. Presidential and parliamentary elections were held on October 28.

Foreign observers deemed voting free and fair.

Daviz Simango, third in the presidential race so far behind Guebuza and opposition leader Afonso Dhlakama, complains his party was unfairly left out of most parliamentary races. Election officials rejected his candidates' paperwork.
