Few changes are made as Obiang retains his firm grip on power.President Teodoro Obiang Nguema has reappointed his prime minister after dissolving the government on February 2nd.“Making use of the powers granted to me by law, I appoint Francisco Pascual Obama Asue as Prime Minister in charge of administrative coordination,” said a presidential decree, read on national television on February 5th.Obiang also renamed the three deputy prime ministers to their posts. Further appointments were made later the same day.The outgoing government, formed after the April 2016 presidential election, was dissolved following legislative, senatorial and municipal elections in November, in accordance with the law.The ruling Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE) maintained its firm grip on power in the November vote, which was widely criticised by the opposition as fraudulent.The ruling party won 99 of the parliament's 100 seats, while the main opposition party, Citizens for Innovation, won the remaining seat and said it had been subjected to a major crackdown, with scores of its members arrested (see p. 21672).
