Guinea: Country votes in second election after transition to civilian rule
October 11 , 2015
Guineans are casting their votes in the second democratic presidential election since the country got independence in 1958.
President Alpha Conde is hoping to secure a second term. His main rival, Cellou Dalein Diallo, has told supporters to participate in the voting after a court rejected his plea for a delay.
The last election was historic as the country moved from military to civilian rule, but Guinea has faced tough challenges since then, including last year’s deadly Ebola outbreak and economic uncertainty.
