Botswana Awaits Results in Close Election

Botswana voted on Wednesday in a cliffhanger election set to test the decades-long dominance of the ruling party and challenge the country's image of stability.

The southern African nation's 2 200 polling stations started closing at 17:00 GMT as many were still waiting in queues to cast their ballots in the evening.

Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) spokesperson Osupile Maroba this would delay counting slightly.
