Results

About the election Short description of the context and results of the election.
According to the official results, President Alpha Condé's Rally of the Guinean People (RPG) Rainbow came in first, winning 53 seats in the 114-member National Assembly. Its allies took seven seats. Two opposition parties led by former prime ministers came in third and fourth: The Union of Democratic Forces of Guinea (UFDG) of Mr. Mamadou Cellou Dalein Diallo took 37 seats and the Union of Republican Forces (UFR) of Mr. Sidya Touré, took 10. Other opposition parties took seven seats. The opposition forces rejected the result of the poll. International observers, including UN, EU, and Ecowas, said "breaches and irregularities were observed in a certain number of constituencies”. During the election campaign, the RPG ran on the government's record, including reforms and infrastructure investments. The opposition forces urged voters to “sanction” the Government, accusing the President of not doing enough to improve standards of living. The 2013 parliamentary elections were the first to be held since 2002. They had been constitutionally due by 2007 but the National Assembly was dissolved following a coup in December 2008. Presidential elections took place in September and November 2010, thereby ending a period of military rule. However, parliamentary elections, initially scheduled for December 2011, were successively postponed due to various reasons, including a dispute over the composition of the election commission and the subsequent refusal by the opposition to register candidates for the elections.
