Mauritania Opposition Wants Senatorial Election Postponed

Mauritanian opposition parties asked the government to postpone elections for members of the upper house of parliament planned for April 24.

The polls should only take place once “an agreement between the political parties to assure the transparency and the regularity of the ballot” is secured, the Coordination of the Democratic Opposition said in an e-mailed statement today from Nouakchott, the capital.
