Tanzania Vote Invalid In Capital

Tanzania’s electoral board decided Monday to proceed with the nation’s first multiparty election in most of the country but cancel the vote in this capital city, an opposition stronghold.

The election was suspended Sunday amid widespread charges of fraud, National Electoral Commission officials said.

In Dar es Salaam, site of the worst irregularities, new ballots will have to be printed and the election rescheduled.
