Con­akry – Guinea’s pres­i­dent an­nounced on Mon­day that par­lia­men­tary elec­tions ini­tially due in late 2018 would once again be post­poned, as the coun­try grap­ples with long-run­ning op­po­si­tion protests.

Pres­i­dent Al­pha Conde said par­lia­men­tary elec­tions would be pushed back by two weeks – from 16 Fe­bru­ary to 1 March.
