UN welcomes opposition participation in polls

The United Nations has welcomed the participation of the opposition in elections for the first time in last ten years.

“We called on all sides to exercise restraint and ensure a peaceful post electoral environment, where people can maintain their right to assembly and expression,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a note on Monday.

He said the UN encourages the parties to address electoral complaints in a peaceful manner and through legal means.

“We regret the loss of life and injuries sustained by candidates and voters during the electoral campaign and on election-day,” read the note.

Violence and attacks on people and property are not acceptable, Dujarric said.
