GUINEA ELECTION UPDATE: CENI Holds Press Conference and Issues “Preliminary Results”

Update to this update:  Supposedly the reason more communes or prefectures were not announced in the partial results presentation is because the UFDG has filed a challenge to vote tallies for other communes and prefectures and the CENI decided not to include these challenged vote tallies in today’s announcement.

Based on reporting from, the press conference by CENI president, Gen. Sangare, took place this afternoon.  He apologized to journalists for not being able to make the press conference scheduled for yesterday.

He announced that four people had been arrested for circulating false results and reiterated that only the CENI can announce election results

Sangare then called Pathe Dieng, CENI operations director to the microphone, to give the partial results:

Information was provided for five communes and prefectures, plus the embassies.

Alpha Conde won Kaloum, Dixinn, Coyah, Frian, Boffa, and Maroc.  Cellou Dalein Diallo won most of the vote from the embassies.  The results for the embassies were given.

Guineenews is keeping track of results and you should check their website.

Hmmmmm . . . seems like a very partial presentation of partial results.  The stage is being set for the next chapter.

    mr konate u gave the world your word to have a free elections and restore the country back to democracy that has not happend since we gained independence from france.
    if you make this possible , u will be called along side the world heroes but if failed , then guinea will have other years of tumoil, which we dont want.
    we want to come , we want to develp our mother land, its only good governance make this possible, pls save the land…………………

    1. Your concerns are very legitimate and the transition government’s handling of the election has been very bad. Guinea risks an ethnic civil war if it continues on this path — shame on those who drive the good, wonderful people of Guinea straight into this disaster.
