Junta Leader Doumbouya to be Sworn in as Guinea President

The leader of the military junta, Lieutenant Colonel Mamady Doumbouya, will be sworn in as President of Guinea.

Announcing that Doumbouya will take office as President, the Supreme Court noted that Doumbouya will rule the country until the transition to civilian rule.

It was announced that no member of the military junta in Guinea could participate in the general and local elections.


The army led by Doumbouya detained the president of Guinea few weeks ago.


Gunshots were heard on September 5 in the Kaloum region, where the Presidential Palace Sekoutoureya and administrative buildings are located in Conakry, the capital of Guinea.


A few hours after the incident, Lieutenant Colonel Mamady Doumbouya, head of the Special Forces Troops (GFS), announced that they had seized power.


Doumbouya announced that they took over the administration due to the bad situation in the country and established the National Unity and Development Committee (CNRD).
