[efoods]Afghan electoral officials declared incumbent President Hamid Karzai the winner of the 2009 presidential election Monday, after canceling this weekend’s second round of voting.
Observers say Karzai’s real test will be whether he can form a government that is seen as legitimate in the eyes of the Afghan people and the international community.
The Independent Electoral Commission made the announcement after they canceled Saturday’s presidential runoff following the withdrawal of opposition candidate Abdullah Abdullah.
