Guinea is a republic and the government is composed of three

branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. The executive

branch consists of an elected president and appointed civilian

ministers; the legislative branch consists of the elected

National Assembly; and the judicial branch has a supreme

court. There is universal suffrage for Guinean citizens over

the age of 18. Political parties were legalized in April 1992.

Since 2009, the number of political parties has grown, with 24

fielding candidates for the 2010 elections.

The administration of Guinea is carried out on four levels,

beginning at the top with the national government, followed

by regions (8), prefectures (33), and sub-prefectures (100),

also called rural development communities (CRDs). The

president appoints officials to all levels of the country’s highly

centralized administration.
