Mauritania opposition to boycott presidential election

A Mauritanian opposition coalition on Sunday (May 4th) decided to boycott next month's presidential election, AFP reported.

The announcement by the National Forum for Democracy and Unity (FNDU) followed a meeting of the coalition over the timing of the June 21st vote and demands for electoral reform.

"All the political parties affiliated to the Forum decided unanimously to boycott this election," said former Prime Minister Yahya Ould Ahmed Waghf, the FNDU's main negotiator in the dialogue between the opposition and the ruling majority.
