Maldives ex-leader Mohamed Nasheed faces run-off

Former Maldives leader Mohamed Nasheed has topped a re-run of a presidential vote but will need a run-off.

Nasheed secured 46.93% of the vote, but failed to win an outright majority.

A run-off vote scheduled for today may be delayed as Nasheed's main rival has not approved the voter register needed for the poll to take place.

Nasheed has been seeking to regain power after he was forced to resign in 2012, sparking a political crisis.

He won the Indian Ocean archipelago's first-ever democratic vote in 2008, replacing Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, who ran the country autocratically for three decades.
