Guinea opposition, gov't on collision course over polls delay
The Cellou Dalein Diallo-led opposition in Guinea and the government of President Alpha Conde may be set for a collision course.
The opposition coalition has announced that it will stage regular street demonstrations, starting this Thursday.
On Monday, Guinean opposition leaders said their regular protest were to demand " a clear dialogue " with the Condè government.
Once again, delay in the holding of parliamentary and local elections is at the heart of their grievances, after the presidential polls in 2010.
The opposition is blaming the government for Guinea’s failure to hold the elections to dates, as the debate continues over revision of the voter register.
Sidya Touré is leader of the opposition UFR party and he’s been speaking about the consequences of the political stalemate created, as a result of the continuing delay in holding transparent general elections in Guinea.
