The head of Afghan President Hamid Karzai's re-election campaign said on Friday the incumbent was decisively leading the count and there would be no need for a second round run-off.

"From what we have obtained so far, we can claim that there is no need for a run-off and we can claim that we're in the lead," campaign chief Din Mohammmad said.

"We have got this figure from our observers at the (voting) sites," he added.
