GUINEA ELECTION UPDATE: 98% of Ballots Counted – Diallo Has 52%-55% of Vote, BUT Will He Be Declared the Winner?

November 9, 2010

As you might imagine, the Guinean websites are operating at full throttle.  Here is what we know so far:

-Unless we hear an announcement to the contrary, results are supposed to be announced today.

-With 98% of the ballots counted, Diallo’s score is being reported as between 52%-55% of vote.

-It is being reported that General Konate, who promised not to intefere with the CENI prior to the announcment of the vote, is doing just that.  CENI President, Gen. Sangare, is receiving enormous pressure from Konate to name Conde the victor.

Stay tuned and keep the seatbelt nearby!

    Are you really serious about your very own statement, “It is being reported that General Konate, who promised not to intefere with the CENI prior to the announcment of the vote, is doing just that. CENI President, Gen. Sangare, is receiving enormous pressure from Konate to name Conde the victor.” It is diametrically ambigious at best and fanatically idiotic at worse to make the same statement in one breath and then contradict yoursef. People like you are the cause of confusion and the source of great ethnic tension that lead to violence. Let the Independent National Election follows its course
    Thanks!

      I want to thank your for helping me out on Guinea issues. When you complain about how a particular situation is characterized on this site, I know I’m on the right track and cutting a little too close to the bone, eh?

    dear mr konate, we thank you very much making guinea hold its first democratic elections but pls do not destroy the tower you build with you own hands.
    there is no need to pressurise the chairman of INEC , let the votes count. or else you will be responsible for many more deaths in guinea, which is not what we are praying for.
    pls in the name GOD dont take guinea to the pit again, the whole world is praising you for the elections. dont dissapoint ur fans.
    God bless you

    I am kindly pleading to all in Guinea to totally avoid violent .Sierra leone gained nothing from such .It is the poor that get poorer and reach get reacher when ever violent occur in a country. Please accept what come out of the election and Allah to judge the rest.
    I however pray that Allah guide the election officers.
