Madagascar began announcing results in dribs and drabs Saturday after its first post-coup presidential elections, with only 52 polling stations out of 20,001 reported in the morning.
"Results will only really start arriving later in the day," said election commission (Cenit) spokeswoman Valerie Andrianavalona.
"Checking the results takes time," she told AFP, adding final results would probably only be available in a week.
A Western election observer said the delay was not abnormal.
