Conakry - Guinea's opposition says "appalling"
fraud committed during the West African nation's legislative elections will
make it difficult to accept the results.
Opposition politician Sidya Toure said Monday night that
Saturday's vote was marred by ballot-stuffing, vote-tampering and the creation
of more than 50 fake polling stations.
He was speaking after a meeting attended by opposition
leaders including Cellou Dalein Diallo, who came in second in Guinea's first
democratic presidential election in 2010.
The legislative vote was intended to complete Guinea's
transition to democracy after decades of dictatorship and strongman rule.
However, the vote was delayed by nearly two years and the pre-election period
was marred by violent protests.
The announcement of partial results by the electoral
commission, expected Monday night, was delayed after officials said the
spokesman had fallen ill.
