Comoros election: Vote counting underway [The Morning Call]

The Morning Call

Vote counting is underway in Comoros following a controversial presidential election held on March 24, 2019.

The polls were however marred with violence in two of the three biggest islands of the Indian Ocean archipelago following confrontation between opposition parties and security forces.

According to the 12 opposition candidates contesting the poll, major irregularities were witnessed at several polling stations. 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.
