Scheduled for last September, the draft of a new Constitution was expected to be made public last month. It is now clear that the transition will extend beyond December 31st, 2024, but transition President Mamadi Doumbouya has announced a referendum for this year. According to the National Transition Council tasked with its drafting, the text is ready.

According to a source familiar with the matter at Guinea’s National Transition Council, the drafting of the draft Constitution has been completed for several weeks. The President of the NTC, Dr. Dansa Kourouma, had even committed to making the text public last month after submitting it to the government and the Supreme Court for validation.

However, this step, dubbed “dialogue between institutions,” had to be postponed following the unexpected dissolution of the government team in February and the late installation of newcomers.

The same source estimates that the content of the future fundamental law will be unveiled shortly after the presentation of the general policy of the new government.

This is not the first time the transitional parliamentary chamber has announced an imminent release of the text. Dr. Kourouma announced being “ahead” of the schedule and guaranteed delivery of the Constitution project within three months.
