The ruling party meanwhile said it was confident it would have a majority in parliament after the vote results are announced.
“The opposition demands the pure and simple annulment of the vote because fraud was so massive,” the main opposition parties said in a joint statement read to journalists in Conakry.
“In spite of repeated warnings, the opposition notes that the authorities and the CENI (Independent National Electoral Commission) persist in publishing electoral results that in no way reflect the reality of the ballot,” the statement added.
