Al Jazeera English Moldova recount sees Communist win

A recount of legislative elections in Moldova, called after mass protests against the result, has confirmed the ruling Communist Party's landslide victory of April 5, the country's election commission says.

The results of the April 5 election gave the ruling party of Vladimir Voronin, the country's president, 60 out of 101 seats in parliament.

It fell just one short of the 61 needed for the party to fully control the selection of the next president.

Moldova's liberal opposition parties declared they would lodge an appeal against the recount in the country's highest court, claiming voting lists were swollen with 400,000 extra people who were either dead or living abroad.
