West Africa CSOs call for inclusive dialogue on restoration of democratic governance in Guinea
Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in West Africa have called for an inclusive dialogue and processes towards the restoration of democratic governance in Guinea.
The coalition of the West African CSOs in a press statement expressed concerns about the recent political developments in Guinea asserting that it acknowledge with dismay and disappointment the erosion of democracy in Guinea during the last few years.
Adding that the popular sentiments that have greeted the coup d’etat do not represent a rejection of democracy or an approval of military rule by the Guinean people; they merely reflect the widespread disappointment and betrayal that Guineans felt about the ousted government of President Alpha Conde.
The coalition in the statement among others called on the National Rally and Development Committee (CNRD) to embrace and initiate dialogue with diverse sections of
Guinean society and chart an inclusive process – with a clear transition timetable – to restore Guinea to the democratic path.
