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 GUINEENEWS.org, 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.
