Guinea's opposition says "appalling" fraud committed during the West African nation's legislative elections will make it difficult to accept the results.
He was speaking after a meeting attended by opposition leaders including Cellou Dalein Diallo, who came in second in Guinea's first democratic presidential election in 2010.
The legislative vote was intended to complete Guinea's transition to democracy after decades of dictatorship and strongman rule. However, the vote was delayed by nearly two years and the pre-election period was marred by violent protests.
The announcement of partial results by the electoral commission, expected Monday night, was delayed after officials said the spokesman had fallen ill.
