MINSK (Belarus): The main Opposition candidate in Belarus' tense presidential elections said he would not recognise the results of Sunday's vote and called for a repeat election. The statement by Alexander Milinkevich stoked concerns of a violent confrontation between police and the Opposition supporters. ``These elections will be recognised neither by us nor by democratic countries,'' Mr. Milinkevich told a news conference.
