Nationalist leader says Scots tricked out of independence

MANCHESTER England (Reuters) - Defeated Scottish nationalist chief Alex Salmond accused Britain's political leaders on Sunday of tricking Scots out of independence after a dispute about how and when to give them more powers. Salmond, who is stepping down as leader of the pro-independence Scottish National Party (SNP) after failing to persuade Scots to leave the United Kingdom, accused Britain's three main political parties of winning last Thursday's referendum by 55-45 percent by making a false promise of new powers. "I think the vow was something cooked up in desperation for the last few days of the campaign and I think everyone in Scotland now realises that," said Salmond, referring to a pledge by Prime Minister David Cameron and other leaders before the vote to rapidly expand Scottish autonomy in the event of a "No" #Arabic #Argentina #Business #China #conservatives #facebook #France #markets #Middle East #Technology #United Kingdom #United States

Ghani named Afghan President-elect after deal to end election dispute

KABUL (Reuters) - Former finance minister Ashraf Ghani was named Afghanistan's president-elect on Sunday after he signed a deal to share power with his opponent, ending months of turmoil over a disputed election that destabilised the nation as most foreign troops prepare to leave. The announcement withheld the final election numbers, apparently as part of the political deal between Ghani and rival Abdullah Abdullah, a former foreign minister who claimed the process was rigged against him. #aut #cnt #content #cookie #rco #typeof-registered #typeof-social #undefined #values #wcnts #Yahoo!
