The final results of Lesotho's general elections revealed no outright winner as the ruling party narrowly edged out its nearest rivals, data on the website of country's electoral commission showed on Wednesday. Incumbent prime minister Thomas Thabane's All Basotho Congress party won 40 constituencies in the weekend poll, just three more than the Democratic Congress (DC) as the close race tested the durability of a South Africa-brokered truce following an attempted coup by the army last August.
