National Council for Democracy and Development

The National Council for Democracy and Development (French: Conseil national pour la démocratie et le développement, CNDD) was the ruling junta of Guinea from 2008 to 2010.


Historical backgroundEdit

The CNDD seized power in the 2008 Guinean coup d'état on 23 December 2008. This followed the death of the previous long-serving President, Lansana Conté.


On 5 May 2009 the government recalled thirty of the country's overseas ambassadors - about three quarters of the nation's total. No reason was given for the decision.[1]
