Vote counts commenced slowly where pro-presidential
candidates faced opposition opponents in tight races.

Bottlenecks appeared at district election commissions that

them for processing. The same was witnessed by opposition party observers.

Election authorities blamed the huge delays on faulty or

commission officials, often without food and under sleep deprivation.
