Diallo vows to keep up struggle for democracy in Guinea
Guinea’s main opposition leader Cellou Dalein Diallo has spoken of the need for the country’s opposition to be allowed to demonstrate.
Speaking to West Africa Democracy Radio (WADR) French Desk after the opposition called off their latest street protest in Conakry, Diallo said the Guinean people were behind the opposition, more than ever before.
“Our Constitution allows opposition parties to stage demonstrations. It is our right, we are just obliged to declare our intention to do it. We do not need to write to obtain an authorization,” Diallo noted.
Diallo, who is leader of the opposition Union of the Democratic Forces of Guinea (UFDG), further told WADR that “The people of Guinea are determined to fight to restore true democracy in our country. We know that it will need sacrifice and the Guinean people are ready to make the necessary sacrifice to see democracy restored in their country, to see human rights respected and fundamental freedoms guaranteed.”
