Mozambican Incumbent Leads

Nov. 3, 2009, midnight

Incumbent President Armando GUEBUZA is expected to win re-election following general elections on October 28. With most votes counted on Monday, GUEBUZA had more than 75 percent support. Many observers expect his ruling Liberation Front of Mozambique (FRELIMO) to win a two-thirds legislative supermajority, which is required to amend the constitution, but final results are not due until late next week. Opposition activists have alleged fraud in some polling places, and international observers speculated about bias in the election commission.
