NIAMEY (Reuters) - Niger’s President Mahamadou Issoufou won re-election, getting 92.5 percent of the votes in a run-off poll, the country’s electoral commission said on Tuesday.

Sunday’s election, which had become a near-formality when the opposition coalition declared a boycott, gives Issoufou a second five-year term.
