Military Dissolves Gabon Government, Ousts President

A few days after winning the election, Ali Bongo, the president of Gabon, was ousted from office by the military.
In order to declare their coup, soldiers reportedly appeared on Gabonese national television, according to the BBC.
The coupists also announced the annulment of Saturday’s election and the dissolution of the democratic government in the country.
In an election that the opposition said was highly contested, Bongo, who took office after the passing of his father in 2009, was elected for a third term.
The new development coincides with efforts to find a solution to the Niger Republic’s democratically elected president being ousted.
Both the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and African Union (AU), which have rejected the coup in Niger, are yet to react to the coup in Gabon as of the time of filing this report.
