Ouagadougou (AFP) - The party of Burkina Faso's president-elect Roch Marc Christian Kabore came first in the west African country's parliamentary vote but fell short of winning an absolute majority, according to official results announced Wednesday by the electoral commission.

After securing 55 seats out of 127, Kabore's Movement of the People of Progress (MPP) must now seek coalition partners in order to form a government.
