On September 24, Guineans head to the polls to elect a new National Assembly. Previously scheduled for June 2007, this legislative election was postponed due to delays caused by a general strike and difficulties in establishing the Independent National Electoral Commission. The election was postponed further following a military coup d’état led by Captain Moussa Dadis Camara after the death of President Lansana Conté in December 2008. Shortly after seizing power, Captain Camara dissolved the National Assembly. In February 2010, a transitional government appointed a 155-member National Transition Council that has since acted in its place.
In July 2013, the international community brokered a compromise between the government and opposition, paving the way for elections. This poll will be an important step in the country’s return to constitutional order.
