On 12 April a military uprising ousted former prime minister Carlos Gomes Júnior just as he was about to compete in a run-off presidential election that he was poised to win. Gabriela Keseberg Dávalos, Senior Communications Officer for the International Crisis Group, and Vincent Foucher, Crisis Group West Africa Senior Analyst, were in Bissau to examine the current situation in the country. In this podcast they discuss the reasons for the overthrow and the priorities of the new transitional government.
