UFDG Campaign Manager, Fofana, Concerned About Vote Rigging in Dixinn and Ratoma Municipalities in Conakry
Tension reins in Guinean party HQ before release of provisional results
APA-Conakry (Guinea) Tension is palpable at the headquarters of some political parties, especially that of the Union of Democratic Forces of Guinea (UFDG) of Cellou Dalein Diallo, whose campaign manager Dr Fode Oussou Fofana openly suspects the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of rigging the elections in Dixinn and Ratoma municipalities in Conakry.
This tension comes on the eve of the announcement on Tuesday afternoon by the INEC of the first trends of 27 June presidential poll results.
Fofana justified his accusations by “the slow vote-counting. This could have serious consequences,” he told reporters on Monday.
The same atmosphere of tension prevails at the Rally of the People of Guinea (RPG) of Alpha Conde and the Union of Republican Forces (UFR) of Sidya Toure.
To avoid surprises, these parties centralize all results in their respective headquarters.
