Gabon warns opposition and France on disputed polls

The Gabon government accused President Ali Bongo’s challenger in the disputed Presidential poll, Jean Ping  of trying to destabilize the country, and warned French ruling party against “interference” in its affairs.

With both sides trading accusations of fraud after a bitter election campaign, people have been stockpiling food, while police manned major crossroads and soldiers deployed at petrol stations and banks.

Ping, a former Foreign Minister, African Union Commission Chairman and lifelong political insider, is the main challenger to Bongo, has declared himself winner of the poll

Interior Minister Pacôme Moubelet-Boubeya said he would announce results after a meeting of the electoral commission and warned that any attempts at destabilization by publishing results would not be tolerated.

Gabon’s first-past-the-post system means the winner only needs more votes than any other candidate.
