Africa’s longest serving leader Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has won a sixth term as Equatorial Guinea’s president, the country’s electoral commission has announced.
Although Equatorial Guinea’s President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has been in power for over 40 years, he was recently reelected for a sixth term in office, the country’s electoral commission, Faustino Ndong Esono Eyang, announced.
This is likely due to the fact that he has maintained a strong grip on power throughout his time as leader and has been able to quash any potential opposition.
However, there have been allegations of human rights abuses and corruption during his time in office, and it remains to be seen whether he will be able to continue to hold onto power in the face of increasing scrutiny.
Faustino Ndong Esono Eyang, the head of the electoral commission, announced on Saturday that in the country’s recent presidential elections, Mbasogo had received 94.9% of the votes. This is equivalent to 405,910 ballots.
Eyang solemnly proclaimed that Obiang Nguema Mbasogo had been elected President of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea for a seven year term. He noted that the results of the election were a clear indication of the people’s support for the President and his policies. He expressed confidence that under President Obiang’s leadership, the country would continue to prosper and meet the challenges of the future.
The results of the vote, posted on the government website, showed that turnout was 98%. This is an incredibly high turnout, and it is indicative of the level of interest and engagement that the people have in their government and the political process. This is a good sign for democracy in the country, and it bodes well for the future.
The two opposition candidates, Andres Esono Ondo and Buenaventura Monsuy Asumu, garnered 9,684 and 2,855 votes, respectively. These results mean that the incumbent party lost significant ground in this election, and that the people of Equatorial Guinea are looking for change. This is a significant shift in the political landscape of the country, and it will be interesting to see how the government responds in the coming months.
Obiang, 80, who has been in power for 43 years, went into the election with the backing of a coalition of 15 parties, including his own Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE). Obiang is Africa’s longest-serving leader, and has been accused by opponents of repression and corruption. He has defended his record, saying he has transformed his country from a “backward” nation to an emerging oil producer.
The results of the most recent election have once again proved that the ruling party is the best option for the people of Equatorial Guinea. Vice President Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue made this clear in a tweet, saying that the results showed that the party “continue[s] to prove to be a Great Political Party.” This is yet another example of the party’s commitment to making Equatorial Guinea a great place to live.
The governing party and its coalition partners won a landslide victory in yesterday’s elections, taking all 55 seats in the Senate and 100 seats in the lower parliamentary house. This is a resounding endorsement of the government’s performance over the past four years, and ensures that they will be able to continue implementing their agenda without opposition.
Speaking at a rally in the capital city of Malabo, opposition party leader Manuel Ndong Mifumu praised the governing party for its handling of the country’s economy and said that he was confident that the PDGE would continue to lead the country forward.
“Without doubt, we carried out a great campaign, demonstrating with facts that the PDGE is the guarantee for the present and future of GE (Equatorial Guinea),” said Mangue.
Mangue went on to say that the country’s strong economic performance over the past few years was proof of the PDGE’s commitment to doing what was best for the people of Equatorial Guinea.
In the West African nation of Equatorial Guinea, President Teodoro Obiang Nguema has been elected to office multiple times with more than 90% of the vote. The small nation of around 1.5 million people has been largely supportive of Obiang’s rule, despite his critics accusing him of human rights abuses and corruption. Obiang has been in power since 1979, making him one of the longest-ruling leaders in Africa.
He is widely seen as a strong leader who has helped to stabilize the country and bring about economic growth. However, his critics say that he has used his power to line his own pockets and that human rights abuses are still a serious problem in the country. Obiang has remained popular with the majority
Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo became the President of Equatorial Guinea in 1979 after ousting his uncle, Francisco Macias Nguema, in a coup. President Obiang has been widely criticized for his human rights record and for his rule of the country, which is widely considered to be one of the most corrupt and repressive in the world. Despite this, President Obiang has remained in power for over four decades, and he is currently Africa’s longest-serving head of state.
