Guineans in the Diaspora decries PM's delay to name cabinet

Paris- France (PANA) -- The Association of Guinean Expatriates (AGRE) in Paris, Wednesday described as "unacceptable procrastination" the delay by the new Prime Minster Lansana Kouyate to name his cabinet.
"It's a month today since Lansana Kouyate was appointed Guinean PM.
We can't understand how and why he has not formed a 19-member team (as he had promised)," the AGRE chairman Lancine Camara said at a meeting of the Guinean Diaspora in the French capital.
Camara argued that the country was moving on each day without a government, a phenomenon that was plunging Guinea further into economic and social crisis.
Kouyate, named PM after mediation by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) following the political and social crisis that hit the country early this year, had blamed the delay on the pursuit of consultations with the political and union stakeholders.
"The emergency is reported everywhere in Guinea.
Everything needs to be re-done in the country.
Despite this situation, Kouyate finds it comfortable to waste time in useless consultations, that's unacceptable," he said.
"The Diaspora disagrees with Kouyate on the fate of Lansana Conte.
For us, the president must step down as he is the cause of all evils in Guinea.
The PM thinks otherwise," Camara noted.
