By Reuters | February 20th 2016 at 16:11:41 GMT +0300

President Yoweri Museveni has won Uganda's presidential election, the electoral commission said on Saturday, cementing his 30-year grip on power in the East African nation.

"The commission declares Yoweri Kaguta Museveni elected President of the Republic of Uganda," commission chairman Badru Kiggundu said. Museveni won 60.8 percent of the vote, while his main challenger Kizza Besigye won 35.4 percent.

European Union and Commonwealth observers have criticised the poll and Besigye's camp had disputed preliminary results.
