Burundi's one-man presidential race

Incumbent president sole candidate in poll marred by opposition boycott and violence.

    Burundi's presidential election has been marred by violence and ethnic tensions.

    The vote was supposed to assert the war-torn country's democratic credentials and cement a fledgling peace deal with rebels.

    Instead, its 3.5 million voters were left without a choice of candidates after the opposition pulled out over fraud claims.

    All six opposition candidates pulled out of the vote, handing Pierre Nkurunziza, the current president, a guaranteed victory.
