NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - Kenya's election commission has announced final vote tallies from the country's presidential vote, and Deputy Prime Minster appears to have won with 50.03 percent of the vote.

Getting over the 50 percent mark was crucial to avoid a run-off with Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Odinga's camp has indicated legal challenges could be filed.

The election commission planned a formal announcement of the winner at 11 a.m. Kenya time (3 a.m. EST) Saturday.

A win by Kenyatta could greatly affect Kenya's relations with the West because the candidate faces charges at the International Criminal Court for his alleged role in directing some of Kenya's 2007 postelection violence.
