Vote Count Underway In Mozambique

Oct. 29, 2009, midnight

According to preliminary results released Thursday, the ruling Front for the Liberation of Mozambique Party (FRELIMO) is leading in Presidential and legislative elections held on October 28. Final results are expected on November 12. Citing 100 percent support for incumbent President Armando GUEBUZA in some polling places, some observers believe there was fraud but have not yet estimated its extent. The vote is Mozambique's fourth since a 15-year civil war ended in 1992. FRELIMO has won every election since then, beginning in 1994.
