Equatoguineans voted this Sunday in presidential and legislative elections, in which Teodoro Obiang Nguema, in power for 43 years, has secured re-election.

This small African country of 1.4 million inhabitants has a political regime that is among the most authoritarian in the world.

In total, 427,661 people are registered on the electoral roll.

At 80 years of age, Obian, aspiring to a sixth presidential term, holds the world record for longevity in power, leaving monarchies aside.

Obang has always been elected with more than 93% of the votes and his all-powerful Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE) occupies 99 of the 100 seats in the outgoing National Assembly and the 55 in the Senate, which is also renewed this Sunday, as than the mayors.

In the presidential election, Teodoro Obiang faces Andrés Esono Ondo, general secretary of the Convergence for Social Democracy (CPDS), the only opposition party that is not prohibited, and Buenaventura Monsuy Asumu of the Social Democratic Coalition Party (PCSD), until now an ally of the PDGE in the legislative elections.
