Guinea’s electoral commission starts releasing provisional poll results


The provisional results announced by CENI were those from Guinean embassies in foreign countries where Guineans in the diaspora voted.


There were also some results from electoral constituencies in the interior of the country whose results had been submitted to CENI.

Vote tallying is still going on at various local administration centers and a source from CENI told Xinhua the final provisional results may be released Friday.

Eight candidates, including incumbent President Alpha Conde, took part in the elections.

About 10,000 election observers, including 250 foreign observers, have been deployed across the country to monitor the elections.

Elsewhere on Wednesday, Guinea’s Foreign Minister Francois Louceny Fall who met with diplomats accredited to Guinea, accused some candidates of making “inflammatory remarks.”

He reiterated the government’s “commitment to maintain peace and social order.”

Justice Minister Christian Sow who was equally at the meeting, promised that the “government will deal firmly with anyone who incites the public to cause violence.”

The government’s reaction came after some opposition leaders threatened to organize street protests to express their rejection of the Oct. 11 presidential election results. Enditem
