GUINEA OPPOSITION DEMANDS RETURN TO CIVILIAN RULE

Guinea’s main opposition leader says more than hundreds of the country’s political parties will present a joint demand for a return to civilian rule to the military junta that seized power in September.

Cellou Dalein Diallo told a news conference that the “collective of political parties had agreed a timetable for a political transition.”

Meanwhile, the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, is demanding elections within six months.

It suspended guinea from the regional bloc after President Alpha Condé was deposed in a coup nearly four months ago.

On Monday the United States dropped Guinea, along with Ethiopia and Mali, from a Africa trade preference agreement over human rights concerns.
