KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai has secured more than 50 percent of the vote in last month's election, according to the final results announced Wednesday.
The results won't be certified until investigations of election irregularities are completed by the Electoral Complaints Commission, which has received many complaints.
Karzai had more than 3 million votes, compared with more than 1.5 million for his nearest challenger, former foreign minister, Abdullah Abdullah, according to Afghanistan's Independent Election Commission.
