With transparent elections imminent, 'dynamic democracy' taking root in Guinea, Minster tells UN

New York, Oct 4 (IBNS) In his address to the United Nations General Assembly today, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Guinea, Francois Lounceny Fall, confirmed the imminent holding of presidential elections in his country, hailing the polls as a sign of a "democratic dynamic" taking root there.

"Our country will spare no effort to participate in this exciting [exercise], especially when it is anchored in a democratic dynamic that will materialize on 11 October with the holding of transparent presidential elections," Lounceny Fall told delegations on the closing day of the Assembly’s general debate.

""In this context, I welcome the leading role of the United Nations and all partners in the dialogue process that culminated in the signing of the global agreement of August 20, 2015, between the presidential camp and the opposition," he said.

"From the inter-Guinean dialogue initiated this past June, with the support of the United Nations, the subsequent agreement with the opposition had indeed helped ease the political tensions in the country, which was crucial with the polls then just months away.

"The Minister added that the election will mark "a new beginning towards a true economic and social development," particularly in the context of the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, adopted last week by the General Assembly.

"On other issues, Lounceny Fall welcomed the fact that Africa resumed its growth and is investing in defence and security capacities to maintain the stability of its States. Those efforts strove to put an end to all “flashpoints” hindering democratic progress at a time when the continent is facing terrorism that was affecting all regions.

" “The elimination of economic and social inequality, and the participation of people and countries in inclusive development will stand as a “bastion against terrorism,” he said, underscoring that: “We must find ways to stem the scourge that strikes at the very heart of our people our people, attacks the symbols of our nations and causes profound humanitarian crises."

"This goal, could not be won without a "participatory and collaborative dynamic of our people and our country" to define inclusive development policies and programs capable of fighting against marginalization, frustration and downturn, he said.
