[Guinean news] Junta revises elections promise

After originally promising to hold elections in 2010, the ruling CNDD junta is now saying it will hold polls sometime in 2009. This, according to France's secretary of state for cooperation.

Reuters notes that: Major donors, the United States and European Union, have demanded a return to constitutional rule, and the African Union has suspended Guinea's membership. But there has been little internal opposition and some nearby countries have indicated that they were likely to work with Camara.

This analysis from the Canadian Press explores the 'Groundhog Day' nature of the recent coup.
