Guinea Opposition Will Contest Oct. 18 Presidential Vote

Guinea’s main opposition party announced Sunday that it will take part in next month’s presidential election despite its concerns that President Alpha Conde’s bid for a third term is undemocratic.

The development sets the stage for a third face-off between Conde and opposition leader Cellou Dalein Diallo, who first ran against each other in the country’s historic 2010 election that came after more than a half-century of dictatorship. The opposition had threatened to boycott the Oct. 18 vote, citing conditions that unfairly favored the ruling party. However, Diallo vowed Sunday he would defeat the president.
