Partial results from Wednesday’s election in Namibia suggest that incumbent President Hage Geingob is on course to win, but with a significant drop in support compared to the previous election.
With the votes in half of the constituencies in Namibia now counted, Mr Geingob, from the governing Swapo party, has a commanding lead over his nearest rival.
So far, he has 55.4% of the vote, while independent candidate Panduleni Itula has 29.6%.
In 2014, the president won with nearly 87% of the voters choosing him.
Swapo has governed the country since independence in 1990. This election took place against the backdrop of a troubled economy and high youth unemployment rates.
