Tanzania’s opposition won’t accept election result

DAR ES SALAAM (AFP) – Tanzania’s main opposition presidential candidate, Tundu Lissu, said yesterday he would not recognise the outcome of this week’s election, declaring the vote “marred by irregularities at all stages”.

“Whatever happened yesterday was not an election, and thus we do not recognise it. We do not accept the result,” Lissu told reporters in Dar es Salaam. “This is not an election at all. We do not accept, and do not agree, with any results coming from this process.”
