The Supreme Court in Cameroon has confirmed the re-election of incumbent President Paul Biya, taking more than 70% of the estimated 3.7 million votes.
Paul Biya has been president since 1982
The court announced the final result after rejecting a complaint by opposition parties, who allege widespread fraud and irregularities.
Mr Biya will serve another seven-year term having already led for 22 years.
His nearest rival, John Fru Ndi of the Social Democratic Front, gained just over 17% of the vote, the results show.
70.9% - Paul Biya
17.4% - John Fru Ndi
4.5% - Adamou Ndam Njoya
3.7% - Garga Haman Adji

Most international observers said the election was well run and transparent, except for the Paris-based Federation of Human Rights Leagues which alleges irregularities.
The 71-year-old president came to power in 1982 and won the last election with 93% of the vote after the opposition staged a boycott.
Following a 1996 amendment, Cameroon's president can only serve two terms.
