Guinea-Bissau Election Winner

This is the promised follow-up to "Guinea-Bissau votes coming in" posted here on Monday.
Malam Bacai Sanha won Guinea-Bissau's run-off presidential election on Sunday with 63 percent of the vote, the West African country's electoral commission said on Wednesday.

M. B. Sanha was the Africano da IndependĂȘncia da GuinĂ© e Cabo Verde(African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde; PAIGC) candidate for the presidency, and will enjoy an absolute majority in the Parliament upon taking office.

He'll have his work cut out for him, but here's wishing a better future for Guinea-Bissau.
