Guinea President Conde hints at third-term bid despite protests

Guinea’s president has hinted for the first time that he may run for another term in office – if voters approve a new constitution in Sunday’s referendum.
The main opposition coalition says it will boycott parliamentary elections and the referendum that are happening on the same day.
They accuse Alpha Conde of trying to hold on to power.

In This Story: Guinea

Guinea is a country in West Africa, bordered on the west by the Atlantic Ocean. Formerly known as French Guinea (French: Guinée française), the modern country is sometimes referred to as Guinea-Conakry to distinguish it from other countries with “Guinea” in the name.

It’s known for the Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, in the southeast. The reserve protects a forested mountain range rich in native plants and animals, including chimpanzees and the viviparous toad. On the coast, the capital city, Conakry, is home to the modern Grand Mosque and the National Museum.
