Guinea Opposition Plans to Protest Over Electoral Process

May 06, 2012

Guinea’s two main groups of opposition parties plan to hold peaceful protests on May 10 in Conakry, said former Prime Minister Sidya Toure.

“The groups, known as Le Collectif and Alliance pour la Democratie et le Progres, will protest to demand a transparent electoral process,” Toure, who leads the Union des Forces Republicaines party, said yesterday in an interview from Conakry, the Guinean capital.

“We will organize a caravan inside the country after the peaceful protests to require our implication in the electoral process, and the reorganization of the electoral body,” Toure said. “We will continue demonstrations as long as we have no elections management system compatible with the Guinean electoral law.”
