KABUL: Former foreign minister Abdullah Abdullah is leading Ashraf Ghani in Afghanistan's presidential election by 11 percentage points after half of the ballots were counted, officials said Sunday, with a run-off vote likely next month.
The Independent Election Commission said Abdullah was on 44.4 percent with former World Bank economist Ghani on 33.2 percent as counting continues. Eight candidates stood in the April 5 election to succeed Hamid Karzai. -AFP
