The presidential election in Rwanda was held on Monday. The result was, to say the least, not a surprise.
The New Times of Rwanda is reporting the preliminary results announced by the National Electoral Commission. They indicate the following:
Paul Kagame (Rwandan Popular Front) – 92.9 per cent
Jean Damascene Ntawukuriryayo (Social Democratic Party) – 4.9 per cent Prosper Higiro (Liberal party) – 1.5 per cent
Alvera Mukabaramba (Party for Progress and Concord) – 0.7 per cent
So, incumbent president, Paul Kagame, has been re-elected.
