Equatorial Guinea leader Obiang, 80, seeks to extend 43-year rule
Teodoro Obiang Nguema, who is the world’s longest-standing president will seek to extend his 43-year authoritarian rule, marked by alleged rights abuses and corruption, in the nation’s election taking place today.
The West African oil-producing nation of about 1.5 million people has had only two presidents since independence from Spain in 1968; Obiang and his uncle Francisco Macias Nguema who he removed in a coup in 1979.
The 80-year-old Obiang, who has always been elected with more than 90 percent of votes in polls is vying for a sixth term against two other candidates: Andres Esono Ondo and Buenaventura Monsuy Asumu.
Obiang is also accused of muzzling dissent and freedom of expression. The government has denied the accusations.
Protests are mostly forbidden, media is heavily controlled, and it is not uncommon for political opponents to be arbitrarily arrested and tortured, rights groups say.
Intimidation has increased in the run-up to the polls, activists say, with authorities targeting civil society groups and critics of the regime.
