Nine members of Guinea’s National independent electoral commission (CENI) out of a total of 25 are protesting against the decisions made by CENIchairman Bakary Fofana concerning the display of the voters list and the transfer of the data of the company SAGEM to the South Africa-based Data Entry Clerk, Waymarck, which is strongly decried by the opposition.
"We have recently been experiencing dysfunctions over the decision-making process. We have noted hidden fait accompli and fractional work. It looks like a partisan attempt to get round the rules of procedure," the nine members denounced in an official statement.
Mamadi Conde , who is a rapporteur of the Commission, said the provisions of the internal rules and regulations are not fully abided by and some of the internally-discussed issues are reported to the media without any consensus or vote.
“We could not keep quite any longer, that’s why we have raised issue on which we are ready to discuss. If they are ready for dialogue we are open, if not we will convene a press conference meant to report the issue to not only Guinean legal authorities and opinion but also to the international community," he added.
The nine Commission members had denounced the unilateral decision to set the legislative elections on 12 February without any consensus in plenary and the dissimulation of report by the Francophone experts.
