He added that “We are going to protest against this electoral hold-up through the street. We are in the process of building a case, which is very difficult since our office is occupied, we don’t have access to our documents, but we are nevertheless going to refer the matter to the constitutional court.”

Meanwhile the ruling party has asked the opposition to desist from violence amid the declaration of results.

“My call to the opposition activists: lay down weapons, be calm and look forward to the future. Nothing is worth destroying Guinea,” remarked Sékou Condé, permanent Secretary of the ruling RPG party.
