Residents fear rumours about conflict

Radio Timor-Leste, 12 April 2012 - Residents in the capital of Dili fear rumours that conflict will appear if one of the presidential candidates does not accept the results of the election.

Rosario dos Santos said he evacuated his family to his hometown because of the rumours.

Rui Bernardo said that he and some of his relatives also heard about rumours on instability that might occur.

He called on the security authorities to continue guaranteeing security so that people can remain calm.

In response, the Timorese Defence Force (F-FDTL) Commander, Major General Lere Anan Timur said the elections this year would be successful and that there would not be a coup d’├ętat.
