CONAKRY (Reuters) - Guinea's opposition coalition demanded the annulment of a September 28 legislation election on Friday, citing what it said were widespread irregularities in the voting process and threatening to call for protests.

"The opposition demands the annulment of this election because of the scale of fraud witnessed," said a statement read by opposition spokesman Aboubacar Sylla during a news conference.
