Guinean President Alpha Conde’s party announced that he will seek another term in office, becoming the second West African leader this month to say term limits don’t apply when there is a new constitution in place. The announcement sets the stage for violent election seasons in both Guinea and Ivory Coast, where presidential elections are set for Oct. 18 and Oct. 31 respectively. Already tens of thousands have taken to the streets in Guinea to oppose another term for Conde. His proposal has been particularly unpopular given Guinea’s half century of strongman rule that only ended with Conde’s election in 2010. The president insists he is following the will of the people by running this October as a public referendum had approved changes back in March.
