President Paul Kagame, presidential candidate of the RPF Inkotanyi, has won a third 7-year term at the highest office, with an overwhelming majority of 98.63% of the votes, the National Electoral Commission has announced.
The two other contenders, Frank Habineza of the Democratic Green Party and independent candidate Philippe Mpayimana both failed to get 1% of the votes. Both have admitted defeat.

There were 16,691 polling stations across the country, while 1800 observers, including more than 400 foreign ones, monitored the election, which passed without noticeable incident.
In a TV speech after his victory, Kagame pledged to maintain economic growth.
“This is another seven years to take care of issues that affect Rwandans,” he said.
