Final results showed today that Afghanistan's presidential election will go to a second-round vote on 14th of June, between former foreign minister Abdullah Abdullah and ex-World Bank economist Ashraf Ghani.

The head-to-head election will choose a successor to President Hamid Karzai in Afghanistan's first democratic transfer of power.

Whoever wins will have to oversee the fight against a resilient Taliban insurgency as 51,000 US-led troops depart this year, as well as try to strengthen an economy that relies on declining aid money.
