Cameroon opposition alleges poll fraud

YAOUNDE - Cameroon's main opposition party alleged on Monday that a presidential election in the central African state had been marred by fraud and said it was gathering evidence for a formal complaint.
Veteran President Paul Biya, who is widely tipped to win a new term, has acknowledged there may have been "imperfections" in the staging of Sunday's single-round vote but denied there had been fraud."Our lawyers are already collecting evidence to show that there was fraud everywhere," Elizabeth Tamajong, Secretary- General of the Social Democratic Front (SDF), told Reuters by telephone.
Accounts that some voters cast two ballots while others did not vote at all risk undermining the credibility of the poll in the oil-producing nation, weeks after a poll in Zambia showed peaceful change through the ballot box is possible in Africa.
