Guinea Junta Dissolves Govt Months To Democratic Transition

Guinea military junta has dissolved the interim government and sealed all borders.

Gatekeepers News reports that the presidency’s secretary general, Amara Camara read the decree on Monday via national TV.

Camara said directors of cabinet, secretary generals, and their deputies, will be in charge until a new government is formed.

He, however, did not specify when a new administration would be appointed or why the dissolution was made.

In a separate communiqué, the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces, Ibrahima Bangoura, said the dissolved government officials were mandated to return their vehicles and passports as soon as possible.

Bangoura added that their bodyguards had to end their service. The officials’ bank accounts were also frozen.

The military took over power in a coup in September 2021 after Alpha Conde, the country’s first democratically elected president, was deposed.

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) kicked against the military takeover and suspended Guinea from the bloc.

The junta leader, Mamady Doumbouya, while bowing to international pressure, agreed to a 24-month transition period set by the military and ECOWAS.

The transition period is expected to elapse in December.
