Diallo told supporters on Monday that “despite the serious anomalies that marred the smooth running of the election… I am victorious,” while Conde stated: “If victory is mine, I remain open to dialogue and available to work with all Guineans.”
The country’s electoral commission is still counting the votes but, so far, as of Wednesday, they have declared that Conde has maintained a lead over his opponents, defeating challengers in 14 out of 20 constituencies.
Conde’s attempt to secure a third term in office has been the subject of contentious debate in the country, as opponents argue it is in violation of the law, which imposes a two term limit on the President. Conde argues his term was reset when Guinea held a constitutional referendum in March on changing the presidential term of office from five to six years.
