Guinea's Opposition, Ruling Party Agree on Poll

Guinea's opposition and ruling party reached an agreement to hold the country's long-delayed legislative elections in September, the opposition said Wednesday.

Aboubacar Sylla, a spokesman for a coalition of opposition parties, said the opposition had agreed to several issues that had earlier been sticking points, including the use of a South African-based vendor to create the voter IDs. Earlier the opposition had claimed that Waymark was in cahoots with the ruling party, and was planning to use the voting software to rig the vote.

"We have agreed on a realistic chronogram which could open the way for us to hold legislative elections on Sept. 29," he said.

The accord calls for elections on Sept. 29 and will be signed Wednesday afternoon under the guidance of United Nations special envoy Said Djinnit, who has undertaken his own version of shuttle diplomacy in Conakry, trying to get the estranged sides to agree.
