Afghanistan's Abdullah rejects election result: spokesman

KABUL (Reuters) - Afghan presidential contender Abdullah Abdullah has rejected preliminary results of last month’s run-off election which put his rival Ashraf Ghani in the lead, his spokesman said on Monday.

“We don’t accept the results which were announced today and we consider this as a coup against people’s votes,” said Mujib Rahman Rahimi, a spokesman for Abdullah’s campaign.
