Guinea-Bissau

WorldABC.xyz: facts on every entity in the world

Guinea Bissau, a small West African country, which is considered by many to be a narco state and a failed state, today holds presidential elections.

Although nine candidates are presented, the two most likely to win are former Prime Minister Carlos Gomes Junior of the party in power, PAIGC, and the opposition Kumba Yalá, of the PRS.

Here the real question is not who will win the elections but whether the Army will respect the results or decide to intervene as it has done so many times throughout the history of this former Portuguese colony.
