    Equatorial Guinea Introduction - 2003
    http://www.theodora.com/wfb2003/equatorial_guinea/equatorial_guinea_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2003 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background: Equatorial Guinea gained independence in 1968 after 190 years of Spanish rule. President OBIANG NGUEM MBASOGO has ruled the tiny country, composed of a mainland portion plus five inhabited islands and one of the smallest countries on the African continent, since he seized power in a coup in 1979. Although nominally a constitutional democracy since 1991, the 1996 and 2002 presidential elections - as well as the 1999 legislative elections - were widely seen as being flawed.


      NOTE: The information regarding Equatorial Guinea on this page is re-published from the 2003 World Fact Book of the United States Central Intelligence Agency.
