A former President of Madagascar, Andry Rajoelina, has won the country’s Presidential run-off.
Electoral authorities say he had nearly 56 percent to defeat another former President, Marc Ravalomanana.
Both candidates had previously promised to accept the result.
However Mr Ravalomanana who was ousted by Mr Rajoelina in a coup almost 10 years ago – has since made allegations of what he calls “massive fraud” against his rival.
Mr Ravalomanana did not attend the Electoral Commission’s results announcement, made amid high security in the capital Antananarivo.
The constitutional court has nine days to decide whether to confirm the commission’s results.
