Only a "miracle" for his opponents could prevent incumbent Hamid Karzai from winning last month's Afghan presidential election in a single round, a spokesman for Karzai said on Wednesday after preliminary results showed Karzai with a majority.

The result is not final until after a recount ordered by a fraud watchdog, but Karzai spokesman Waheed Omar said the result made it exceedingly unlikely that the probe could overturn the outcome, saying: "Unless a miracle happens, we are the winner."
