UN: 'No winners' yet in Afghan poll, Karzai ahead

September 12, 2009 18:16

Afghanistan's presidential election remained undecided Saturday, as election officials released just a sliver of new results, with the incumbent Hamid Karzai still on course for victory. The UN mission in Afghanistan warned there are "no winners" yet in the country's presidential contest, as election officials released a tally showing Karzai with 54 percent and challenger Abdullah Abdullah with 28 percent. The Independent Election Commission has now released results from 93 percent of polling stations. Five percent of votes have not been counted. The rest have been quarantined for suspected fraud. The standings were little changed from the last results issued Tuesday.
