Election tension in Mauritania / By Sheikh Bekaye

Tuesday, 4 November, 2003,


With only three days to go before Mauritania’s multi-party presidential election the security forces have said they have found arms

They are linking this to some supporters of former president and opposition leader Mohammed Ould Haidallah, but he denies this

Four candidates are vying for the presidency this Friday which is being seen as the first real contest since the 1992 presidential elections and the arms claims are certain to increase tensions

The security services say they found the arms buried in some mosques and houses belonging to Mr Ould Haidallah’s supporters.

But Mr Ould Haidalla, whose home was also searched, told the BBC that only two rifles were found “which were in my possession”

He added that he had a permit for one of the automatic rifles which he had borrowed from the national guard

The other he said he obtained during the western Sahara war

He led battles against the Polisario fighters in 1970s

“They knew about this weapon and they knew I had it with me,” he said

Ould Haidalla also ridiculed that idea that he could be a threat to national security and denounced what he described as an act of intimidation

According to him these inspections and accusations were made because the ruling regime feels that his candidacy is a real threat to President Maaouya Ould Sid’Ahmed Taya

he also accused the government of preparing fraudulent elections

A communique issued by the director of security in Nouakchott said many groups supporting Mr Haidalla, including Islamists, were planning violence if they lost the ballot

A violent uprising in June was the most serious challenge so far to the rule of President Taya, who took power in a coup of his own in 1984 and later made enemies among the country’s Islamists

While Mauritania is officially an Islamic republic, the authorities have cracked down on suspected Islamists and politicians with links to Saddam Hussein since the beginning of the war in Iraq

Mauritania is deeply divided between three main groups – light-skinned, Arabic-speakers, the descendents of slaves and dark-skinned speakers of West African languages

  6. “That is the long-lasting legacy of not just Russian involvement and intrusion in domestic elections,” Gillum added, “but also the lasting legacy of voter disenfranchisement, voter intimidation, the legacy of lives beyond any one election cycle. It plays with the psyche and it convinces people that maybe their votes don’t count, which we have to fight against every day.”

  9. I have mastered some important matters through your website post. One other point I would like to mention is that there are lots of games in the marketplace designed in particular for toddler age small children. They incorporate pattern acknowledgement, colors, family pets, and forms. These generally focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This will keep a child engaged without feeling like they are learning. Thanks

  10. The core of your writing while appearing reasonable initially, did not sit very well with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do nicely to help fill in those breaks. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I could surely end up being amazed.

  11. An added important area is that if you are a senior citizen, travel insurance pertaining to pensioners is something you should really contemplate. The old you are, the harder at risk you might be for permitting something poor happen to you while in foreign countries. If you are definitely not covered by quite a few comprehensive insurance cover, you could have many serious challenges. Thanks for revealing your ideas on this weblog.

  12. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks|

  13. Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?

  14. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favourite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to remember of.

You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , other folks can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks|

  15. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!|
