Cameroon court rejects all petitions calling for re-run of elections

YAOUNDE, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Cameroon’s Constitutional Council on Friday rejected the last of 18 petitions calling for the partial or total re-run of an Oct. 7 presidential election that leading opposition members said was marred by fraud.

The rejections pave the way for the official announcement of election results before Sunday, which are widely expected to extend the 37-year rule of President Paul Biya. (Reporting By Josiane Kouageu Writing by Edward McAllister Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
