Congratulatory Message on National Assembly Elections in Guinea-Bissau
The Bissau Liaison Office of the Embassy of the United States of America commends the people, political parties, and government of Guinea-Bissau for the successful National Assembly elections that took place on Sunday. We would like to highlight the roles played by Bissau-Guinean civil society and the National Election Commission in this accomplishment. We also recognize the contributions made by the Economic Community of West African States, the African Union, the Community of Portuguese Language Countries, the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau, and the European Union, collectively known as the P5. The United States’ observation mission witnessed an open, peaceful, and efficient voting process in polling stations across the country. Congratulations to all those who participated. This marks an important next step towards a more prosperous and more stable Guinea-Bissau.
