[Guinean news] Legislative elections postponed yet again

Guinea's Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) has announced that legislative elections originally scheduled for June 2007 and already postponed three times will be pushed back again and will not be held in November 2008.

The CENI chairman cited the change of prime minister earlier this year as one reason. Additionally, the cabinet minister in charge of elections Sékouba Bangoura upped the funding requirements from his predecessor's US$10 million to US$34 million, significantly widening the funding gap.
