CONAKRY, Guinea (AP) — A United Nations special envoy has called for disputes over Guinea's hotly contested legislative elections to be settled in court.
The remarks from Said Djinnit late Saturday came one day after the opposition announced it would push for the results to be invalidated while threatening to organize street protests if its concerns about irregularities were not addressed.
Djinnit also appealed for calm after presiding over talks that lasted all day Saturday.
The Sept. 28 vote was meant to serve as a final step toward democratic rule in Guinea, which held its first presidential election in 2010.
But the election was delayed by nearly two years because of disputes over how it would be carried out, and the pre-election period was marred by multiple violent protests.
