Guinea Political Dialogue: Deadlock
Relations between Guinea’s government and the opposition continue to be on a roller coaster ride.
After a meeting between President Alpha Conde and the opposition late last year in the capital Conakry, hopes were raised that the political dialogue was on course and the dispute over the date for the parliamentary and local elections would be a thing of the past.
But now, the opposition Alliance for Democracy and Progress is pulling out of the dialogue process, claiming that the reconciliation committee headed by the Bishop of the Anglican Church of Guinea is partial.
Below is a report by our Conakry Correspondent Abdouhrama Diallo, on the latest twist in the bid to reconcile political leaders, after Guinea’s first ever but bitterly fought democratic elections.
