The Juwa opposition party in the Comoros says it does not recognise last Sunday presidential elections
The Juwa opposition party in the Comoros says it does not recognise last Sunday presidential elections. People in Comoros took to the polls in the islands of the Indian Ocean archipelago's presidential elections, where incumbent Azali Assoumani is widely expected to win a new term in a vote that rivals say has been hijacked. The opposition alleged that irregularities at several polling stations amounted to a "coup d'état" and called for public "resistance". They claim some independent candidates did not receive the necessary documents to access polling stations and that some polling stations had opened earlier than the official time. They accuse the incumbent President Assoumani of hijacking the ballots in order to be declared the winner. More from Aboubakar Aboud, spokesperson for the Juwa party..
