President is hoping his attacks on the Bidens will create repeat of mistrust of ‘Crooked Hillary’
Guinea opposition candidate Cellou Dalein Diallo said on Monday he had won the first round of the Oct. 18 presidential election, but his claim was quickly disputed by the electoral commission and the government, setting the stage for a stand-off. "Despite the serious anomalies that marred the smooth running of the ... election and in view of the results that came out of the ballot boxes, I am victorious in this election in the first round," Diallo told journalists and cheering supporters.He did not give any figures but said the tally was based on his party's count, not an official tally being conducted by the national election commission, which has yet to publish results.The electoral commission said Diallo's claim carried no weight."The Independent National Electoral Commission is the only body authorized to give provisional results. It is neither for a political party nor for any individual to do so," Mamadi 3 Kaba, a spokesman for the commission, told Reuters."We regret the attitude of Mr. Diallo and we say that this declaration is null and void," he added.Guinea's government said in a statement late on Monday that Diallo's statement was irresponsible and could sow confusion and undermine peace in the West African state. It warned it could launch criminal charges against him.The government said results from over 15,000 polling stations were still being tallied. "It is impossible, at this stage of the process, to have neither trends, let alone the results of the vote."Diallo is the main challenger to Guinea's 82-year-old incumbent president, Alpha Conde, who is seeking a third mandate after a constitutional change in March which sparked deadly protests.Following his announcement, Diallo's supporters swept into the streets in his strongholds, declaring their alleged victory.Diallo said on Twitter that three young men were killed in the capital, and several others were injured by security forces while they celebrated his victory.The government was not immediately available to comment on the deaths.Security Minister Damantang Albert Camara earlier accused Diallo's party of publishing false results, and warned it risked triggering violence."This strategy of forced, premature and unjustified celebration was carefully planned well before the election," Camara said in a statement.Rights groups say at least 50 people having been killed over the past year during demonstrations against the constitutional change that allowed Conde to seek at least six more years in power.(REUTERS)

Guinea's opposition leader Cellou Dalein Diallo declared Monday, without waiting for official results, that he had won a presidential election against incumbent Alpha Conde, who is seeking a controversial third term. Speaking at a press conference in the capital Conakry a day after the hotly contested first-round vote, Diallo said he had emerged "victorious" despite "anomalies which marred the ballot"."I invite all my fellow citizens who love peace and justice to stay vigilant and committed to defend this democratic victory," the 68-year-old said, dressed in a sky-blue robe, from his party headquarters.Outside the building, jubilant supporters chanted "Cellou, president". But elsewhere in the city, joyous celebrations by supporters devolved into clashes with security forces.Three "young boys" were shot dead and several people wounded, Diallo tweeted on Monday night. A government official said there was "not enough information" to comment on the matter.AFP was unable to independently confirm the deaths. AFP journalists saw several wounded people in a Conakry suburb, however, as well as a barracks set ablaze by protesters.The unrest follows months of protests against a potential third term for 82-year-old President Conde in the West African nation, during which dozens of people were killed.Although polling day was mostly calm, Diallo's self-proclaimed election victory has set the stage for a showdown with Conde.The government insists that Sunday's vote was fair and that the official electoral authority must declare the results.Conde's RPG party said in a statement Monday that it condemned "with the utmost firmness the irresponsible and dangerous declaration" by Diallo. It called for its activists to remain calm.Bakary Mansare, the vice-president of Guinea's electoral authority, also told AFP that Diallo's self-proclaimed victory was "null and void"."It is not up to a candidate or a person to proclaim himself the winner outside the bodies defined by the law," he said.Signs of a looming electoral dispute had already surfaced during the vote, when Diallo told reporters that Conde could "cheat" his way to power.Opposition members are deeply suspicious of the fairness of the poll, as well as the independence of Guinea's electoral authority.Twelve candidates are vying for the presidency, but Conde and Diallo are the frontrunners.'Chaos' Ousmane Gaoual Diallo, a cadre in Diallo's UFDG party, said that results at individual polling states were public, enabling the party's own observers to conduct a count."If we are the winners, we will defend our victory," he said. "We won't wait." Earlier on Monday, Guinea's government said in a statement that the opposition "clearly intended to create chaos and to call into question the real results that will come out of the ballot box".Much of the tension in Guinea relates to President Conde's controversial bid for a third term.He pushed through a new constitution in March which he argued would modernise the country. But it also allowed him to bypass a two-term limit for presidents, provoking mass protests.After decades as an opposition activist, Conde became Guinea's first democratically elected president in 2010 and won again in 2015, but rights groups now accuse him of veering towards authoritarianism.Diallo was formerly a prime minister under authoritarian leader Lansana Conte. He unsuccessfully challenged Conde in both 2010 and 2015, in elections his party activists are convinced were rigged. Before vote counting began on Sunday, Diallo's activists said their observers had been obstructed at polling stations and alleged ballot-box stuffing.Prime Minister Kassory Fofana said that the opposition publishing results ahead of the official results was tantamount to pouring "oil on the fire".Mansare, from the electoral authority, said Guinea should publish provisional results within a week.Second round Guinea's acrimonious political campaign saw Conde and Diallo trade insults, and was marked by violent incidents in some parts of the former French colony.But it also raised the spectre of ethnic strife, with Conde accused of exploiting divisions for electoral ends -- a charge he denies.Guinea's politics are mainly drawn along ethnic lines: the president's base is mostly from the ethnic Malinke community and Diallo's from the Fulani people. A second round of voting, if needed, is scheduled for November 24.(AFP)
