Preliminary results show incumbent President Paul Kagame is headed for a landslide victory in Rwanda's national election.
He will start a second term of 7 years. Kagame already begun celebrating with his supporters, claiming the results represent "a win for the whole country."
Kagame is the candidate of the ruling Rwanda Patriotic Front. He first became president 12 years ago and won the last election in 2003 with more than 90 percent of the vote.
During his tenure, he increased foreign investment, developed Rwanda's information technology and renewable energy sectors, and established a foreign policy that aims to prevent another genocide.
