Partial results from an election aimed at reuniting war-divided Ivory Coast show President Laurent Gbagbo with a slight lead Wednesday over the main opposition leader.
In a late night state television broadcast that stretched into the early hours of Wednesday, electoral commission spokesman Bamba Yacouba announced results from about half the country's 5.7 million registered voters.
Figures indicated Gbagbo was ahead with nearly 37 percent the vote. Opposition leader Alassane Ouattara had 34 percent, according to an Associated Press tabulation. Ex-president Henri Konan Bedie was in third place with about 27 percent.
If no candidate wins a simple majority, the top two finishers will face off in a second round Nov. 28. More results are expected later Wednesday.
