Opposition gives Guinea government ultimatum

11 September 2013, 08:33

Conakry -A spokesman for Guinea's opposition says it is giving the country's election commission 72 hours to restore the nation's previous roll of registered voters or it will pull out of the elections and start street protests.

The ultimatum issued Monday by opposition spokesman Aboubacar Sylla expires on Thursday. It comes just weeks before Guinea is expected to hold a much-delayed parliamentary election on Sept. 24. The poll has been repeatedly rescheduled as the opposition and the ruling party wrangle over the preparations for the vote. It's meant that the West African nation has been without a functioning legislature for years.

Sylla said that the electoral roll, which was recently made public, is made up "of 80 percent of people who are pro-RPG," he said, referring to the ruling party.
