The alliance of parties that support incumbent president Roch Marc Christian Kaboré called on all candidates to “respect the results” of Sunday’s presidential and legislative elections, after an earlier announcement from opposition parties that alleges fraud and irregularities took place during the vote.

“The APMP (Alliance of the parties of the presidential majority) invites all the actors to respect the results of the ballot boxes”, said Benewende Sankara, during a press conference in Ouagadougou on Tuesday.

He also suggested that those candidates with a grievance should take it to court.

On the eve of Sunday’s vote, opposition parties had already claimed that a “massive fraud” was being prepared, and reiterated this on Monday, citing polling stations that did not open or opened late, ballot boxes that weren’t secured during transport, and lack of polling materials or even personnel to run the polling station.
