Guinea’s political crisis
Supporters of the incumbent president of Guinea, Alfa Conde, are campaigning for a referendum on constitutional review, which will allow the 81-year-old president to be elected for a third term. The opposition, supported by various states (France and the USA above all), opposes amendments to the Constitution. It seems that the upcoming legislative and presidential elections (2019 and 2020) will be a serious test for the country's future, and the economic growth that Guinea has shown in recent years.
