Is Guinea's Alpha Condé headed for a third mandate?
Issued on: Modified:
On Sunday March 1st, some 8 million people will vote, not only for MPs, but also in a referendum on a series of constitutional reforms proposed by President Alpha Conde. Critics fear those reforms would pave the way for Condé to stay in power for a third term. In an interview he granted France 24 on February, Alpha Condé said he wants to let his party decide whether he should run again. Undeterred by the protests led by the NFDC, the ruling party has been out campaigning, leaving observers wondering if a democratic change of power is possible.
