The incumbent president of the Seychelles, James Michel, has won the country's presidential elections.
The election was dominated by the economy
After a close race with the main opposition leader, Wavel Ramkalawan, official figures gave Mr Michel nearly 54% of the vote.
The win extends the 30-year rule of the People's Progressive Front in the Indian Ocean archipelago for another five years.
The campaign had been dominated by concerns over economic growth.
"I'm very happy. It's a victory for me and a consolidation. This is a mandate to continue the work that I have started," Reuters news agency quoted Mr Michel as saying.
Anglican priest Wavel Ramkalawan of the Seychelles National Party gained almost 46% of the vote, and independent candidate and businessman Philippe Boulle received around 0.5%.
The Seychelles People's Progressive Front has ruled in the Seychelles since the former president, Albert Rene, seized power in a bloodless coup in 1977.
He restored multi-party democracy in 1993. Mr Rene had appointed Mr Michel his successor in 2004.
