Afghanistan is set to announce preliminary presidential election results on April 26, with former foreign minister Abdullah Abdullah ahead in early counting but below the 50-percent vote required to avoid a run-off. Abdullah secured 43.8 percent of the vote, with his main rival Ashraf Ghani on 32.9 percent, after four-fifths of ballots were counted, according to partial results released on April 24.AFP PHOTO/Wakil Kohsar        (Photo credit should read WAKIL KOHSAR/AFP via Getty Images)
