Following the release of the provisional results that announced President Alpha Conde winner of the Guinea Presidential Election, the EU has said it doubts the “credibility of the result.”

The European Union said that although voting in Guinea was calm, “questions remain as to the credibility of the result”.

It said it had taken note of the provisional results that announced President Alpha Conde winner, a victory which ensured he secured his third term in office.

The EU said it supported the diplomacy efforts by the Economic of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Union (AU) and the United Nations (UN) to restore confidence.

A delegation of mediators is in the country and has met various political actors, including opposition leader Cellou Dalein Diallo who has been prevented from leaving his house.

“To this end, all actors involved in this process must be able to fully enjoy their freedom of movement and expression.

“It is also important that the means of communication, in particular access to the internet, are guaranteed in all circumstances,” the statement added.

There have been clashes between opposition supporters and security forces across the nation since the opposition leader declared himself the winner.
