Leaders of political parties in Guinea met on Tuesday with members of the junta that removed President Alpha Conde from power a week ago. The meeting was the first of several that the National Committee for Rally and Development (CNRD), led by Colonel Mamady Doumbouya, is expected to have with political activists, civil society and international representatives. The military was expected to face more pressure to set a timeframe for new elections after they opened the four-day series of meetings about the West African nation’s future following the coup on September 5. Toure said the meetings would help “to go forward and handle the transition so we can have a real government, you know, and real elections” that can be accepted by Guineans. Another head of the opposition and former minister of Alpha Conde’s administration, Ousmane Kaba, from the Party of Democrats for Hope said that the military coup was “to stop the institutional constitutional coup” made by Conde, who had changed the constitution to run for a third term. Concerns are growing about how quickly the junta led by Doumbouya will give up power to a civilian-led transitional government as called for by regional mediators and the international community.
