Comoros: UN boss calls for peaceful elections

[Xinhua] -- UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Saturday asked for peaceful, credible and transparent elections in the Comoros.

Ban welcomed the progress made by Comorian people in preparing for Sunday's presidential and gubernatorial elections, said a statement of Ban's spokesman.

"The Comorians have the collective responsibility to ensure that these elections are peaceful, credible and transparent," the statement said.

The United Nations, together with other international partners, will continue to support the Comorian people in their efforts to consolidate democracy and peace, and promote socio-economic development, it said.

The Union of Comoros is an island country in the Western Indian Ocean. It has a population of 780,000 people and is one of the poorest countries in the world.
