Yearbook 2002

Gabon. After a December 2001 election characterized by unrest and organizational problems, the opposition was offered in January to join the government. Three members of the National Forestry National Assembly (RNB/RPG), including party leader Paul Mba Abessole, received ministerial posts, as did Social Democrats leader Pierre Claver Maganga Moussavou. However, the government remained strongly dominated by the Gabonese Democratic Party (PDG).

In the spring, the Constitutional Court forced eight MPs, including two ministers, to resign after failing to vote in their constituencies.

According to Countryaah website, Gabon's two universities were closed in January after the country's professors went on strike. The HEIs, which together have around 12,000 students, were only reopened in mid-November.
