4. Guinea to move to civilian rule in three years
Guinea’s transition to civilian rule will take over 3 years, says coup leader Colonel Mamady Doumbouya. https://t.co/K2hu0I1k2W pic.twitter.com/JMFhZ8jSu2— Al Jazeera English (@AJEnglish) May 1, 2022
The head of Guinea’s military government has announced the country will return to civilian rule after a 39-month transition period. Speaking on television, Col. Mamady Doumbouya, said the proposal would now be put to Guinea’s parliament. His army ousted the elected president in a coup last year — a move many Guineans initially welcomed. But there has been growing discontent as the military junta failed to hand over power to civilian rule.
The announcement came after the regional bloc of West African nations, ECOWAS, set last Monday as the deadline for the army to give its timeline or face immediate sanctions. However, the deadline was missed but the junta asked for more time and said it was considering a transition period somewhere between 18 and 52 months. On Saturday, Col. Doumbouya said the 39-month period — three years and three months — was the “median proposal.”

Real Madrid has clinched their 35th La Liga title with four games to spare after beating Espanyol 4-0 at Santiago Bernabeu. Carlo Ancelotti’s side only needed a point against Espanyol to secure the trophy but ended up taking all three to record their fifth successive victory thanks to a first-half brace from Rodrygo, before Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema added goals.

Madrid has moved 17 points clear of second-placed Sevilla, whose title push effectively ended with a 1-1 draw against Cadiz on Friday, and celebrations are now underway in the Spanish capital. Madrid’s win over Espanyol was their 25th of the 2021-22 campaign, and they have also recorded six draws and three defeats. The Bernabeu outfit boasts the best-attacking record in the division with 71 goals and the second-best defensive record behind Sevilla — with only 29 goals conceded to date.
