ADP leader condemns aggression of CI militants

08.11.2017

In the aftermath of the incident, in conversation with reporters from www.guineaecuatorialpress.com moments before the start of the second phase of the electoral campaign, in the outer area of the Malabo Stadium, the ADP leader, Francisco Mba Olo Bahamonde, said that the coalition with the PDGE is working closely to make sure the population does not make a mistake between the Antorcha ballot papers and those of Antorcha coalition.

For that reason, “both the President of the Republic, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, and the opposition, are emphasising that fourteen parties have formed an alliance with the PDGE. Alliances are convenient as here, in our country, this alliance and its closeness to the party in power has always been criticised. However, throughout the world there are alliances of this kind, in Europe and in other parts of the world, because alliances carry a plurality of opinions in order to create a more balanced development in the country", said Mba Olo.

He also pointed out that the campaign was progressing normally, “We have already reported an incident carried out by the Citizens for Innovation party. Its militants beat up the president of a people's council. But this time the situation was marked by the beating up of the police commissioner from Akonibe, which has perplexed everyone, because it has affected us and we have realised that violence breeds violence. It is concerning to me and, in addition, I wish to praise the police in Akonibe, Centro Sur, and militants, for not having retaliated. The greatest victory we are hoping for is that the results from the elections will be overwhelming. Because where there is one, fourteen have joined. This power is unstoppable".

Regarding the alliance between the ADP and the PDGE, he clarified that, “The main vision in which we coincide is the cultivation of peace, serious dialogue between political powers in the nation, solidarity, bringing government apparatus closer to the public, and many more things".
