    Election results delayed due to fraud probe in Afghanistan


    by PressTV

    Afghan officials have delayed the country's presidential election result for two days.

    The Independent Election Commission says final results will be out on Saturday. It says investigations into the reported irregularities have delayed the process. Hundreds of serious fraud allegations are currently being probed. Partial results from the April fifth election have put former foreign minister Abdullah Abdullah in the lead with more than 44 percent of the votes. If no candidate wins at least 50 percent of the vote, Afghans will have to go to the polls in a runoff in late May.
