The constitutional Court of Gabon has declared the results of the general elections largely favourable to the party of Ali Bongo, certainly, but leading to the end of the functions of Government at a time when the head of State is convalescing in Morocco.
It is in the night from Thursday to Friday that the constitutional Court of Gabon has declared the results of the general elections in October. This decision led to the end of the functions of the Government of this Central African country. The democratic Party of gabon (PDG), Ali Bongo has left the opposition with about twenty seats out of the 143 in the national Assembly.
The current Prime minister, Emmanuel Issoze Ngondet, must submit his resignation to Ali Bongo, who must appoint a new head of Government. However, the basic law stipulates that the current Government ensures the expedition of current affairs until the formation of a new Government. The president of the Constitutional Court, Marie-Madeleine Mborantsuo, said that the new president of the national Assembly will be elected on January 11, 2019.
This verdict of the ballot box falls at the point where the President, Ali Bongo Ondimba, is in rehabilitation in Morocco, where he stayed from November 29, 2018. This stay in morocco had intervened after a period of care of more than a month, which was a result of a stroke, contracted by the chief executive officer, on October 24, 2018, in Riyadh, where the son and successor of Omar Bongo was involved in a forum.
