영국 외무부 ‘무가베 짐바브웨 대통령 대선 결과 도용’


영국은 21일 로버트 무가베 짐바브웨 대통령이 자신을 뽑지 않은 짐바베인들에 대해 무자비한 폭력을 자행하는 등 짐바브웨 대선 결과를 도용하고 있다고 비판했습니다.

데이비드 밀리반드 영국 외무장관은 아프리카 지도자들에게 위기 해결을 돕기 위해 더 노력해야 한다고 촉구하며, 아프리카의 민주적 정통성이 위험에 처해졌다고 말했습니다.

밀리반드 장관은 지난 3월29일 짐바브웨 대통령선거의 부분 검표는 민주주의를 흉내내려는 것이라며 비난하고, 재검표 과정을 그 어느 누구도 신뢰할수도 없다고 밝혔습니다.

Britain is accusing Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe of trying to steal the country's election and of unleashing a campaign of violence against Zimbabweans who voted against him.

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband also urged African leaders today (Monday) to do more to help resolve the crisis, saying that democratic legitimacy throughout Africa is at stake.

He condemned a partial recount of Zimbabwe's March 29th elections as a charade of democracy and said no one can have any faith in the process.

Ballots from last month's vote are being recounted in 23 constituencies. The recount -- which the opposition says is deeply flawed and "illegal"-- could potentially overturn the results of the parliamentary elections which the opposition won.

A South African election observer today described the recount as fatally flawed. The observer (member of parliament Dianne Kohler-Barnard) cited evidence of ballot-box tampering and said she is concerned the ruling party is trying to rig the results.
