Opposition Candidate Wins Guinea Bissau Presidential Vote
Ex-general and former prime minister Umaro Cissoko Embalo has won a runoff presidential election in the turbulent West African country, but a dispute from the ruling party candidate could throw the country into extensive political chaos. Domingos Simoes Pereira, the ruling PAIGC party's candidate, said the vote was marked by "irregularities, annulment and manipulation, which [constitutes] electoral fraud" and that he would file a complaint to the Supreme Court, writes Deutsche Welle.
Poll workers count the votes following the first round of the 2019 presidential election in Guinea Bissau.
