The RPG party of former president Alpha Condé held its first conference in Conakry since the junta took power in September.
At the conference, the former president of the national assembly, DamaroCamara , asked for Alpha Conde’s release “given his age”.
Their only objective is the release of President Alpha Condé, they ask the CNRD (the National Rallying Committee for Development, ed.), that given the age of the president anyone at this age is fragile. And they humbly ask them to release President Alpha Condé.
The transitional government is not insisting on a timeline for elections, on the other the opposition is insisting elections are held in a timely manner.
They consider that the CNRD (the National Rallying Committee for Development, ed.), according to the charter, must be neutral and an arbitrator who must organise the transitional bodies and organise elections in a position of absolute neutrality,” futher stressed DamaroCamara.
The putsch surprised most Guineans even though it was preceded by months of tensions sparked by Conde’s controversial decision to seek a third term in October 2020.
