Guinea Bissau’s electoral commission on Wednesday declared the country’s former prime minister Umaro Cissoko Embalo the winner of Sunday’s presidential election with 54% of the vote.

Embalo, 47, who beat opponent Domingos Simoes Pereira in a run-off vote, will succeed incumbent President Jose Mario Vaz, whose tenure was marred by political infighting, an ill-functioning parliament and corruption.
