Conservative former senator Mario Abdo Benítez has been elected president of Paraguay.
He beat his closest rival, Efraín Alegre from the liberal opposition alliance, by four percentage points.
The result means the right-wing Colorado Party, which has dominated Paraguayan politics for decades, will maintain its hold on power.
Mr Abdo Benítez, 46, has promised to retain low tax policies and boost agricultural exports..
With almost all of the ballots counted, he had won 46.46% of the vote compared to 42.73% for Mr Alegre.
In his acceptance speech on Sunday night, he said, “My administration will be committed to gaining the confidence of those who did not accompany us,”.
“[We] welcome those who want to build a just homeland, a homeland with equity, a homeland with moral, strong, independent institutions.”
