Equatorial Guinea Holds Senatorial, Legislative And Municipal Elections

MALABO, Equatorial Guinea, May 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Electoral delegations from the African Union (AU) and the Africa Caribbean and Pacific Group (ACP) are overseeing the senatorial, legislative and municipal elections in Equatorial Guinea to ensure the electoral process complies with the African charter on democracy, elections and governance aimed at strengthening the institutions for a fair, free and transparent electoral development.

The government of Equatorial Guinea invited these delegations as part of their efforts to improve the electoral process. Following the elections, these delegations will hold press conferences to share their observations.

President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo addressed the local and international media in a press conference held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Malabo. In reference to the elections, he said, "This electoral campaign has enjoyed good civic behavior and organization. Elections have been carried through effectively."

This year's electoral campaign has seen greater participation from Equatorial Guinea's youth. "Our youth has exercised their right to vote. These elections have provided an opportunity for them to learn more about the country's political process. They are the heirs of Equatorial Guinea," concluded President Obiang.

Equatorial Guinea citizens went to the polls today, followed the electoral process without any reported difficulties. The Ministry of Interior will announce initial vote counts tonight. The final results of the elections will be announced next week.

About Equatorial Guinea The Republic of Equatorial Guinea ( Republica de Guinea Ecuatorial) is the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa, and one of the smallest nations on the continent. In the late-1990s, American companies helped discover the country's oil and natural gas resources, which only within the last five years began contributing to the global energy supply. Equatorial Guinea is now working to serve as a pillar of stability and security in its region of West Central Africa. The country hosted the 2011 Summit of the African Union.
