Gabon's governing Democratic Party (PDG) of President Omar Bongo has retained control of parliament, results from Sunday's election show.
President Bongo has ruled Gabon since 1967
But the party's overall majority is smaller, taking 80 out 120 seats - down from the 91 it held before the poll.
Parties allied to the PDG secured a further 13 seats; the opposition won 16 and independents four.
Mr Bongo, Africa's longest-serving head of state, won re-election last year for another seven-year term.
He has ruled the oil-rich country since 1967.
The authorities say voting in another seven constituencies will be held on Sunday, after being postponed for logistical reasons.
