It’s our word against theirs, it is useless...
A deadline set by the Gabonese Constitutional Court to gather electoral fraud complaints from opposition candidates, after the August 31 presidential election, ended Saturday. The court now has a period of one month to rule on whether alleged electoral discrepancies would affect the outcome of the election. Critics have insisted that the procedure has little chance of success, considering the President of the Court’s personal relationship with the Bongo family, and that the candidates are entertaining useless hopes. Opposition leader, opponent Andre Mba Obame, meanwhile, is already looking towards the future.

Gabon: A Bongo family-run Constitutional court to rule on electoral fraud - Insider
We can now understand why late Bongo was able to rule Gabon interrupted for 41 years. Because Gabonese are like babies who don't even know what is good for them. Only late Bongo was able to fashion out what he thought was good for them . Gabon doesn't need an opposition. What are they opposing? Do they have any agenda for Gabon other than what Bongo has? Ali seems better than all others because he experienced his dad's dictatorship and he seems a liberal and different person from from his dad. - Monday 21 September 2009 - 07:53

Gabon: A Bongo family-run Constitutional court to rule on electoral fraud - Insider
Gabon's opposition should accept the results and stay calm. If they never wanted Ali Ben to win, they should've united and presented a single opposition candidate. How is it conceivable that a country of just 1.5 million people had more 20 presidential contestants? It was a joke and they helped Bongo to win. - Monday 21 September 2009 - 07:38
