Rebels who arrested Guinea’s leader introduced a transitional charter

The rebels who arrested Guinea’s President Alpha Condé have introduced a transitional charter.

The country will be governed by military leader Colonel Mamadi Dumbuya, an interim government and a national transitional council. Dumbuya will be appointed president of Guinea. The new constitution will be adopted after a popular referendum. The rebels themselves will not be able to participate in national, local elections.

On September 5, the rebels arrested the current president of Guinea. Colonel Dumbuya dissolved the government and parliament. The reason for the rebellion was corruption in the highest circles of power and poverty of the population.
