GEORGETOWN - Guyana's opposition said on Wednesday this week's presidential election in the South American nation had been rigged in favor of the ruling party and that the process was in "crisis."

The accusation over Monday's election raised the specter of more trouble in the former British colony of 750,000 people, where past polls have been marred by sporadic ethnic violence.

The ruling People's Progressive Party/Civic had been expected to extend its two-decade rule in a nation that is the region's fourth-largest bauxite miner and also a producer of gold, sugar and timber.
