Gabon president accuses EU of taking sides in disputed poll results

Gabon President Ali Bongo has accused international observers who highlighted anomalies in the country’s contested presidential election of bias.

Mr Bongo criticised the European Union mission observing Gabon’s election after questions were raised over his narrow victory.

On Tuesday the EU questioned the legitimacy of the election results in Gabon on 27 august.

The constitutional court is expected to meet later today to consider a challenge by Bongo’s main rival, Mr Jean Ping.

Mr Bongo said he would respect the wishes of the court if it ordered a recount.

Mr Ping, who lost the election by less than 6,000 votes, has called for a general strike and said that dozens of his supporters have been killed in violent clashes since the result was announced.
