Guinea Opposition to International Community: You Guaranteed Security of Electoral Register and July 3 Political Agreement – Now, It’s Time to Step Up

EXCERPT [Translated into English via Google with editing by Guinea Oye]
The Republican opposition held a meeting on Friday, September 13, 2013 from 10am to 12pm at the premises of the UFDG to CBG – Hamdallaye. During this meeting, the political parties of the opposition criticized the lack of real progress in the claims they made in their declaration of 10 September 2013.

Regarding the electoral register, no basis on which to judge its reliability has been provided by the CENI. In contrast, persistent evidence indicates that many duplicates were not refereed, that omissions and arbitrary relocation of voters have not been corrected.

In addition, the number of polling stations in opposition strongholds has been unjustifiably reduced, despite the increase in the number of voters.

Faced with this situation, the Republican opposition reiterates its requirements below:

1. Edit the voter lists by alphabetical order and display CARLE (the list) for a reasonable period time so that corrections can be made and then allow voters to ensure that all necessary corrections have been actually carried out;

2. The resumption of redistricting taking into account the realities on the ground, so that all voters have access to a polling station located at a reasonable distance from their homes and to effectively exercise their right to vote.

The Republican opposition is calling on the international community which has guaranteed the security of the electoral register and the implementation of the political agreement of July 3, 2013, to use all his influence to the satisfaction of both legitimate claims.

Failing to take a diligent account by CENI of its fundamental claims, the Republican opposition will resume its peaceful protests across the country as of Thursday, September 19, 2013. It therefore invites, its leaders and activists and all Guinean Democrats to mobilize for the success of these events.
