If the majority of Heads of State of ECOWAS preferred to adopt the posture of spectator on the post-election situation in Guinea, this is not the case of the President of neighboring Guinea-Bissau.
Umaro Sissoco Embalo delivered his position without ambiguity, returning from an official trip on Monday in Mauritania. And he takes the counterpart of the Guinean Constitutional Court which confirmed the victory of Alpha Conde.
« I am not going to congratulate Alpha Conde. This is my personal position. I will not congratulate him, because I do not agree with the conduct of the election, » said without blinking the head of state of Guinea-Bissau, at the airport of Osvaldo Vieira.
Comments reported by the media of Guinea-Bissau and taken up by Dakaractu. Embalo, who described Condé’s third candidacy as a « coup d’état », considers the post-electoral situation « disturbing » in Conakry and gives an appointment at the next ECOWAS summit to analyze the situation.
