Burundi Opposition Leader Urges Elections Before August

Burundi opposition leader Agathon Rwasa said a presidential election must be held by August at the latest, but a fair vote was unlikely without security and a free media.
Rwasa, a presidential candidate, told Reuters in an interview that it was essential to have an elected government in place by Aug. 26, when the president's current term ends.
A planned June 26 poll looks increasingly untenable after more than a month of protests against President Pierre Nkurunziza's bid for a third term.
