Congo-Brazzaville holds second round of parliamentary elections 

Voters in the Republic of Congo were voting Sunday to choose 50 candidates in 25 constituencies in the second round of legislative elections.

Opposition groups in the country, which is also known as Congo-Brazzaville, had denounced the results of the first round as fraudulent. The Congolese Labour Party of President Denis Sassou Nguesso won the first round of voting on July 10, taking 102 of the 151 seats in the national assembly.

It still has 14 candidates in a run-off vote. The PCT is followed by the Pan-African Union for Social Democracy, the main opposition force, which has four deputies and four of its candidates are in the run-off.
