Burundi's government said Tuesday that President Pierre Nkurunziza would not end his third-term bid for power in elections next month despite weeks of opposition protests.

"This decision is non negotiable," government spokesman Philippe Nzobonariba said in a radio broadcast, dismissing opposition demands he step down. He also said the electoral commission's proposal to delay the presidential election until July 15 was the final time polls would be postponed.
