Angola's ruling party wins general election, provisional results show

LUANDA, Aug 25 (Reuters) - Angola’s ruling MPLA party has won the general election, provisional results showed, taking 61.10 percent of the votes tallied compared with the opposition UNITA party’s 26.71 percent, the electoral commission said on Friday.

So far, 97.82 percent of the votes cast during Wednesday’s election in sub-Saharan Africa’s third-largest economy have been counted, said Júlia Ferreira, a spokeswoman for the National Electoral Commission. (Reporting by Stephen Eisenhammer; Writing by James Macharia; Editing by Larry King)
