07-20-2010 10:59 BJT

CONAKRY, July 19 (Xinhua) -- On Monday evening, Guinea's Supreme Court is expected to announce its verdict regarding the country's first round of presidential elections that were held on June 27, according to state radio.

The radio said the decision will be broadcast live from the Supreme Court.

The verdict will not only give the two names of the candidates who will contest in the second round, but will announce the decisions on the complaints filed by the 21 election losers regarding the handling of the polls.

The National Independent Electoral Commission (CENI) published provisional results days after the elections, showing the leading candidates were Cellou Dalein Diallo and Alpha Conde with 39.72 percent and 20.67 percent of the votes cast.

Meanwhile, a statement from the Guinean government announced the holding of a major consultative forum of representatives of public institutions, including the National Transition Council (CNT), the National Communication Council (CNC), the Economic and Social Council (CES), the CENI, the Special Forces for Security of the Electoral Process (FOSSEPEL), the Supreme Council and representatives of various governmental ministries.

The objective is to avoid any malpractice in the run-off like those reported in the first round.

At the same time, the participants will examine reports written by electoral observer missions and analyze observations made by political parties and other players in the socio-political life of the West African country.

A source close to the prime minister's office confirmed that after the holding of the forum, the final date for the second round of elections will be fixed.
