Congo opposition urges protest of president's re-election

Supporters of Guy Brice Parfait Kolelas, gather at the party headquarters in Brazzaville on March 23, 2016Four defeated opposition candidates in Congo’s recent presidential poll called on their countrymen to challenge the re-election of President Denis Sassou Nguesso through “peaceful” legal means, according to a statement confirmed by AFP Saturday. Sassou Nguesso was declared the winner of the March 20 elections held under a media blackout, extending his 32 years in power in a vote the opposition says was marked by “massive fraud”. The rallying call was signed by runner-up Guy-Brice Parfait Kolelas who received more than 15 percent of votes cast, third-place candidate Jean-Marie Michel Mokoko who polled nearly 14 percent, and candidates Claudine Munari and Andre Okombi Salissa.
