DAKAR (Reuters) - The losing candidate in a run-off election for Guinea-Bissau's presidency, Nuno Gomes Nabiam, said on Thursday he accepted the results after initially rejecting them citing alleged fraud.

"For the sake of peace and stability, I accept the results published by the electoral commission," Nabiam told a news conference in the capital Bissau of Sunday's election, which was won by Jose Mario Vaz.
