Kazakhstan's incumbent President Nursultan Nazarbayev was reelected in Sunday's presidential election with 95.5 percent of votes counted, the Central Election Commission (CEC) announced on Monday.

CED chairman Kuandyk Turgankulov told reporters the partial official results showed the three other candidates failed to collect more than 2 percent of the vote.

Zhambyl Akhmetbekov, head of the Communist People's Party of Kazakhstan, received 1.4 percent of the vote and pro-government Senator Gani Kasymov of the Party of Patriots 1.9 percent. Independent and environmentalist Mels Yeleusizov picked up 1.2 percent.

The electoral body head said the results were "preliminary," but he did not give the percentage of the votes counted.

Hours earlier Nazarbayev claimed his election victory, citing preliminary results and figures of exit polls.

"Preliminary data from the Central Election Commission and exit poll data have established that the Kazakh people, our citizens, approve of the work I have been doing all these 20 years," he said Monday during a visit to the headquarters of his Nur Otan ruling party.
