World - Sudan`s Bashir reelected with 94% of vote


Sudan`s President Omar al-Bashir was elected to another five years in office, results showed Monday, despite international war crimes charges and a vote marred by low turnout and an opposition boycott. Bashir, 71, took more than 94 percent of the vote in the election held earlier this month, the electoral commission said, prompting the opposition to reject the result as a `joke`. National Electoral Commission chief Mokhtar al-Asam announced Bashir`s victory to a Khartoum news conference to cries of `Allahu akbar!` (God is greatest) from the long-serving president`s supporters. Only little-known candidates had run against Bashir and his closest competitor -- Fadl el-Sayed Shuiab of the small Federal Truth Party -- took just 1.43 percent of the vote.

World - Togo president ahead in weekend vote: partial results


Togo`s incumbent President Faure Gnassingbe appeared set for a third term, with partial results from a weekend poll giving him a strong lead, according to election commission figures issued Monday. The Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) said Gnassingbe had won 62 percent of the vote, far ahead of his nearest rival Jean-Pierre Fabre with 32 percent with about 10 percent of ballots counted. Only about half of the country`s 3.5 million voters turned out for the election, according to the CENI, which has five days to announce the final outcome. Gnassingbe has been in power since the death of his father, Gnassingbe Eyadema, in 2005, winning contested elections that year and five years later.

World - Kazakh president wins fifth term with nearly 98% of votes


Kazakhstan`s President Nursultan Nazarbayev on Monday extended his grip on power in the oil-rich, ex-Soviet nation with 97.7 percent of ballots in an election slammed by Western observers as deeply flawed. Nazarbayev, who has run the huge Central Asian country since before the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, improved his already eye-popping scores in previous elections to win a fifth term in power. The Central Election Commission claimed a record turnout of 95.22 percent in Sunday`s vote which was called a year ahead of schedule. Western observers slammed the lack of choice in Kazakhstan`s early presidential election in which the country`s deeply marginalised opposition did not field a candidate.

World - EU, Ukraine leaders meet as shelling worsens, one Ukrainian soldier killed


By Pavel Polityuk KIEV (Reuters) - Top European Union officials met the Ukrainian leadership on Monday for talks on deepening trade links and efforts to bring peace to Ukraine, but worsening violence in the separatist-minded east clouded the summit. As Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko met European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Council President Donald Tusk, Kiev`s military reported intensifying attacks by pro-Russian rebels in the east and south-east. One serviceman from Ukraine`s government forces had been killed and three others wounded, a military spokesman said. The EU-Ukraine summit was the first since a political and free trade association agreement was signed by Poroshenko`s pro-Western leadership after the ousting of the Moscow-backed Viktor Yanukovich in a public revolt in Kiev in February last year.

World - Sudanese President Bashir wins election with 94 percent of vote


By Khalid Abdelaziz KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir extended his quarter-century in power with landslide election victories for himself and his ruling party, according to results announced on Monday, and dismissed allegations that voters had been denied any real choice. Bashir took 94.05 percent of votes in the presidential election and his National Congress Party (NCP) won 323 of 426 parliamentary seats, National Election Commission president Mukhtar al-Asim told a news conference in Khartoum. `Voters didn`t bother to vote or pay attention because they didn`t see it as a real election,` said Abdelwahab El Effendi, a Sudan expert at the University of Westminster.

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir was reelected on Monday with more than 94 percent of the vote in polls in which he he had faced no serious challenger, organisers said. `The number of votes obtained by candidate Omar Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir of the National Congress Party was 5,252,478,` National Electoral Commission chief Mokhtar al-Asam told a Khartoum news conference. Bashir -- wanted by the International Criminal Court on war crimes charges -- had faced just 13 little-known challengers for the presidency, and the mainstream opposition boycotted the vote. His closest competitor, Fadl el-Sayed Shuiab of the small Federal Truth Party, won `1.43 percent,` Asam said.
