Equatorial Guinea

A yes vote is announced


The AFP news agency is reporting that minister and government spokesman Jeronimo Osa Osa Ecoro has announced that with 60% of the ballots counted in Sunday’s referendum that 99.04% voted yes.

If this is correct then 69 year old President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo will be able to stand for two more seven year terms; he has been in power since 1979. The president will also be able to appoint a vice president, most likely his son.
