Former leader Mohamed Nasheed edged ahead in the first round of the Maldives presidential race, but his lack of a clear majority could spell more uncertainty in an election that tests the democratic credentials of the Indian Ocean state. According to the provisional results from the country's Election Commission, Nasheed secured 46.66 percent of the total votes polled, with 472 out of 475 boxes counted. A September 7 vote was annulled based on a secret police report which found vote rigging while an October poll was halted by police after a Supreme Court ruling. Nasheed was the country's first democratically elected leader who came to power in 2008 after 30 years of one-man rule.
