Vote counting has begun in Pakistan where a general election was held today following months of political violence. Partial early results could be available later today. Official returns are not expected until Wednesday. Opposition parties are predicting strong gains in the balloting. VOA's Barry Newhouse reports from the capital Islamabad.

Local media reported the morning turn out was light in Pakistan cities, but picked up in the afternoon. After casting his vote in Rawalpindi, President Pervez Musharraf told state television that he wants all parties to end the confrontational politics that have gripped the country in recent months. "confrontational policies..." Mr. Musharraf said he is ready to work with whatever parties win the election and whoever becomes the country's new prime minister. The president has said he believes lawmakers allied with his PML/Q Party will win a majority of seats despite recent surveys that indicate opposition parties have the stronger support. Voters are choosing lawmakers for seats in Pakistan's national assembly as well as the 4 provincial assemblies. Election officials have denied there is a plan to rig the vote but simmering politically motivated violence in recent months has raised concerns about how opposition parties will respond if they believe the election was rigged. Barry Newhouse, VOA News, Islamabad.

A suicide car bomber has killed at least 37 people and wounded more than 30 in southern Afghanistan, the second such deadly attack in 24 hours. Interior ministry officials say today's attack targeted a Canadian military convoy in the town of Spin Boldak, in the southern province of Kandahar. Officials say those killed in the blast were civilians. At least 3 Canadian soliders were wounded. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for today's bombing. The blast came one day after Afghanistan's deadliest suicide attack since the Taliban was ousted in 2001, at least 100 people were killed Sunday when a bomber blew himself up in a crowd of people watching a dog fighting competition outside Kandahar City.

President Bush has reaffirmed his supprot for Kosovo's independence. The president told a US television interview in his words the Kosovos are now independent. But he stopped short of formally recognizing Kosovo statehood, saying The United States will be guided by a United Nation's blueprint for the territory. Mr. Bush spoke on a trip to Africa today as deeply divided European Union foreigner ministers met in Brussels to discuss Kosovo's declaration of independence. All 27 EU member countries have endorsed dispatching a police and an administrator mission to Kosovo to bolster it's stability.

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is in Kenya to meet with the various parties in the country's reconciliation talks. The US official's one-day visit is seen as raising international pressure for a political settlement to the dispute of Kenyan elections. VOA's Scott Bob reports from Nairobi.

US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice arrived in the Kenya's capital and immediately met with the chief mediator in the crisis talks, former UN secretary general Kofi Anan. After the meeting Rice said the December elections did not produce an outcome that would lead to the governance of Kenya, so that outcome now has to be produced by negotiation and good will. "There needs to be a governance arrangement that would allow real power sharing that could allow a coalition, indeed, a grand coalition, so that Kenya can be governed." Rice's one-day visit also included separate meetings with president Mwai Kibaki and opposition leader Raila Odinga. The two sides have agreed on the need for a political solution to the Kenyan crisis, but government negotiators have rejected power sharing which the opposition demands. Rice was sent to Kenya by President Bush who also said the US government wants to see a power sharing agreement. Kenya's Foreign Minister Moses Wetangula reacted angrily to the remark saying any solution must be a Kenyan one. Scott Bob, VOA News, Nairobi.

President Bush traveled to Tanzania's rural north today to promote the fight against mosquito-born malaria. Mr. Bush announced the plan in 2005 to reduce malaria death by 50% in 15 Sub-Saharan African countries, the worst affected region in the world.

The top US negotiator on North Korea's Nuclear Weapons Program has arrived in China on a trip that is focusing on helping restart stalled disarmament talks. Speaking with reporters today in Beijing, Christopher Hill said he has met with Chinese officials and welcomed any support, any opportunity, to meet with North Korea's representatives in China.

Vote counting has begun in Pakistan where a general election was held today following months of political violence. Partial early results could be available later today. Official returns are not expected until Wednesday. Opposition parties are predicting strong gains in the balloting. VOA's Barry Newhouse reports from the capital Islamabad.

 

Local media reported the morning turnout was light in Pakistan's cities, but picked up in the afternoon. After casting his vote in Rawalpindi, President Pervez Musharraf told state television that he wants all parties to end the confrontational politics that have gripped the country in recent months.
