Afghanistan's election commission says President Hamid Karzai has expanded his lead over top challenger Abdullah Abdullah.
The commission says Karzai has 44.8 percent of ballots counted, while Abdullah has 35.1 percent. The partial vote totals are based on only 17 percent of the country's polling stations.
The commission plans to release partial results each day for the next several days. Final, certified results won't be made public until mid or late September.
Karzai would need to get more than 50 percent of the vote to avoid a two-man runoff.
