Equatorial Guinea’s President Teodoro Obiang Nguema won 96.7 percent in the central African’s election, according to provisional results on Monday of a poll widely criticised for falling short of democratic standards. The figure was published on the government’s website after returns from around a quarter of voting stations.

Obiang came to power in the oil-producing central African nation 30 years ago and is now set for a further seven-year term.
