Guinea’s Presidential Elections Raise High Hopes for the Future


On Sunday June 27th Guineans will elect their President. With 24 candidates and around 12 favorites, these presidential elections will be the very first real elections in 50 years. It is hoped that they will help Guinea to return to constitutional order and progressively climb the steps towards democracy. The pictures taken by Kamissa Camara, Program Coordinator for the Africa Department, provide a glimpse into the different preparations that have been taking place during the months leading up to the elections, in Conakry and in the interior of the country.
