Outgoing President Alpha Condé submitted his candidacy this Thursday, September 3, 2020 to the Constitutional Court. Things are clear now. He will definitely run for a third term. Despite the wind of popular protest with heavy human losses, the strongman of Conakry, aged 82, who is the first democratically elected president in 2010, will try his luck again in the political ring.
“I have submitted my application to the Constitutional Court for the presidential election on October 18. It is a meeting of duty with Guinea and the Guineans,” said outgoing President Alpha Condé.
Alpha Condé is the fourth candidate to have officially applied. He is added to the list of other candidates: former ministers Ousmane Kaba of the Democratic Party for Hope, Abdoul Kabélé Camara of the Guinean Party for Development and Ousmane Doré of the National Movement for Development.
This crucial poll is scheduled for October 18, 2020.
