Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN)-- Afghanistan's presidential election will go to a second round after no one candidate garnered more than 50% of the vote, the country's election commission said Saturday.

The top two vote-getters, former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani, will be in a runoff slated for June 7, said Independent Election Commission head Ahmad Yusuf Nuristani.

"I think the elections went pretty good, we are satisfied with it and with the results," Nuristani said on state television.

Seven million Afghans went to the polls on April 5 to choose a successor to outgoing President Hamid Karzai. It will be the country's first democratic transfer of presidential power.

The preliminary results were announced Saturday, showing Abdullah with 45% of the votes and Ghani with 32%. Zalmai Rasoul's presidential hopes ended with a third place finish with 12% of the vote.

Abdullah and Ghani were seen as the front-runners going into the April 5 ballot.

Abdullah, who is associated with the Tajik ethnic group, is partnered with Mohammad Mohaqeq, a leader of the Hazara ethnic group. He also has a Pashtun on the ticket.

An eye doctor by training, Abdullah became Afghanistan's foreign minister under Karzai. He ran against him in 2009 but dropped out to protest what he saw as large-scale voter fraud.

He is considered to be relatively liberal and has made at least one public statement in support of women's rights.

Ghani, who earned his doctorate at Columbia University in the United States, is from the Pashtun ethnic group. His running mate is Abdul Rashid Dostum, a leader of the Uzbek ethnic group.

Ghani was the country's finance minister under Karzai.

Security will be a key issue for whoever is elected president.

A series of deadly attacks marked the run-up to the vote, and Kabul was again rocked by violence Thursday when at least three American medical workers in the capital were shot by a policeman guarding a hospital....

(verwee interesting.)

Easy breezy__we just watched winter storms and frigid temperatures cripple the first quarter of the nations business. Sht happens eh?

The stock market survived__the mail got delivered and Coors Light cases are still selling for $17.95 per. This morning I purchased gorgeous boneless chicken breasts at Publix for $2.99 lb. Pork, beef and seafood are higher than giraffes nuts however. Gasoline is $3.59.9 here. I liked it better a few months back at $3.20.

SunRail took off today and after 12 hrs people seem to like it__and Verizon is adding 1000 jobs in Lake Mary.

How are things out there in the land of tornadoes and botched executions?

Benghazi is a Republican watering hole and a witch hunt that they will never be able to connect Obama with anything. But in reality they really don't care it's all about flinging enough sh1t knowing some will stick..The things that the Republicans do daily are reprehensible and un-American, with only one goal in mind and that isn't for the good of our nation.
If you're referring to the FBI agent's report about the flying lessons, I believe that got buried somewhere. Failing to connect the dots is what led to the creation of Homeland security. I don't believe that info ever reached the State Dept.

Obama & Hillary lied, people died:
WASHINGTON — U.S. military personnel knew early on that the Benghazi attack was a "hostile action" and not a protest gone awry, according to a retired general who served at U.S. Africa Command's headquarters in Germany during the attack.

Where were you hecklers when George W. Bush invaded the wrong country for the wrong reason and caused the deaths of 4500 young Americans and the wounding of 35,000? I might also point out that he and his administration told a documented 935 lies to make it happen.

As far as the four who were killed in Benghazi....they were drawing hazardous pay for every day they served. What makes them special over the other young soldiers just mentioned? Like Hillary said, "At This Point What Difference Does It Make??"
