His two opponents collected 1% of the votes of this election. According to these partial results, the independent Philippe Mpayimana won 0.72% of the votes cast, and Frank Habineza, leader of the Green Democratic Party, the only opposition party of the country accounted for 0.45% of the votes .
Of the 6.9 million Rwandese voters registered on the electoral roll, the commission estimated that 97% went to the ballot box to choose their candidate and to slip their envelope.
