“We are confidently waiting and I want to say big thank you to every one be confident great things await us ,” Ali Bongo told a jubilant crowd.

Analysts fear violence might erupt if one of the parties claiming victory fails to accept the results of the polls.

Gabon’s interior ministry says the election was free and fair despite claims of fraud noticed in some polling stations.

Ali Bongo became president following the death of his father Omar Bongo Ondimba in 2009.
