World - Gabon`s Bongo finds new pep on the campaign trail

Ali Bongo of Gabon, who is running for a second seven-year term in Saturday`s presidential election, has spent more than half his 57 years cruising the corridors of power. Known variously by his initials ABO, Ali B and less flatteringly as `Monsieur Fils` for succeeding his father who ruled Gabon for 40 years, the usually reticent Bongo has emerged as a man on fire during the campaign. In recent weeks the people of Gabon have seen a new side to their president -- one who is relaxed and cracks jokes.

World - Gabon`s old guard hopes to unseat Bongo dynasty scion

The increasingly disgruntled people of Gabon go to the polls Saturday in a presidential election in which a last-minute opposition pact has robbed incumbent Ali Bongo of a clear run at a second term. Bongo, 57, has long sought to emerge from the shadow of his father, Omar Bongo, who ruled the country of 1.8 million people for 41 years until he died in 2009. The president`s only credible challenger, former senior African Union official Jean Ping, 73, is carrying the flag for the old guard of Bongo senior`s cronies.
