Guinea’s main opposition leader says he and his party are open to taking part in a political transition following Sunday’s military coup. Guinea’s military leaders have tightened their grip on power after overthrowing President Alpha Conde. The 83-year-old leader remains in detention. As many as 80 political prisoners detained by Conde’s government were released on Tuesday. The military takeover has been condemned by Guinea’s partners, various countries and international organizations, including the United Nations, the African Union and the Economic Community of West African States. In this context, what is the way forward for the country?

    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.
