Togo opposition rejects presidential election results

LOME, April 29 (Reuters) - Togo's main opposition coalition CAP 2015 on Wednesday rejected results of the West African nation's weekend presidential election after the election commission declared incumbent Faure Gnassingbe the winner.

"CAP 2015 and its candidate Jean-Pierre Fabre categorically reject these fraudulent results that have nothing to do with those compiled from records collected by our representatives in the polling stations," Patrick Lawson-Banku, Fabre's campaign manager, told a news conference.

Togo's election commission announced late on Tuesday that provisional results showed Gnassingbe won the vote with more than 1.2 million votes or 58.75 percent of the total.
