KDRTV NEWS: The Guinea Junta that ousted former President Alpha Conde has announced that its members will be barred from running the next national or local elections.

The charter provides a government headed by a civilian prime minister and the national council that will temporarily act as the parliament.

The council comprises 81 members from society, including political parties, religious organizations, diplomats, business leaders, and professionals.

The members of the council are also barred from running in the next election.

Women will constitute 30% membership of the council, and two vice-presidents will deputize a president.

The council is yet to decide the length of the transitional period after which a democratic government will be ushered in.

An elite group headed by Col. Doumbouya seized power on December 5, 2021, after accusing the ousted executives of rampant corruption and mismanagement.

Thus, many people questioned if the Ecowas, AU, UN, the US, and other members of the international community know what the people of Guinea want?
