Burundi's ambassador told the UN Security Council that elections will go ahead as planned on Monday despite a call from Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for a postponement.

"The government simply cannot accept to tumble head first into an institutional vacuum, into a chasm," ambassador Albert Shingiro told the 15-member council on Friday.

"That is why we're going to move forward to elections on Monday."
