Obiang, 80, was re-elected for a sixth term with 95 percent of the vote in November, cementing his position as the world’s longest-serving ruler. The US said at the time that it had “serious doubts about the credibility of the announced results”. It urged authorities to work with all stakeholders to address allegations of voter fraud.
