Chad’s military leader, Mahamat Deby Itno, has been declared winner of the country’s presidential election, according to provisional results released Thursday.

The Chadian National Election Management Agency said on Thursday that Déby won the May 6 election with over 61 percent of the votes cast, to beat Succès Masra, the incumbent prime minister and main opponent, who was said to have received 18.5 percent.

The victory allows Déby, the incumbent, to hold onto the presidency, and eliminates the chance of a runoff which would have happened had no candidate received more than 50 percent of the votes.

Déby’s victory also means his family will continue its 34-year dynasty.

He succeeded his father, Idris Deby, who was killed by terrorists in 2021.
