Equatorial Guinea’s long standing president, Teodoro Nguema, has announced plans to seek an extension of his 43 year authoritarian rule.

The elections which will hold on Sunday will see Nguema, seeking to extend his 43-year rule, marked by alleged rights abuses and corruption.

The West African oil-producing nation of about 1.5 million people has had only two presidents since independence from Spain in 1968; the current leader and his uncle Francisco Nguema who he removed in a coup in 1979.

Parliamentary and local elections will be held at the same time.
