Omar Albert-Bernard Bongo
President of Gabon (1967-present)
  • General Info
General Information
Description
El Hadj Omar Bongo Ondimba, was a Gabonese politician who was President of Gabon for 41 years from 1967 until his death in 2009. Omar Bongo was promoted to key positions as a young official under Gabon's first President Leon M'ba in the 1960s, before being elected in his own right to Vice-President from 1966 to 1967, then succeeding M'ba who was in ill-heslth to become the second Gabon President in 1967 when M'ba died. Bongo headed the single-party regime of the Gabonese Democratic Party until 1990, when he, faced with public pressure was forced to introduce into Gabon multi-party politics. His political survival despite intense opposition to his rule in the early 1990s seemed to stem once again from consolidating power by bringing much of the major opposition leaders at the time to his side. The 1993 presidential election was extremely controversial but ended with his re-election then and the subsequent elections of 1998 and 2005. His respective parliamentary majorities increased and the opposition becoming more subdued with each succeeding election. After Cuban President Fidel Castro stepped down in February 2008, Bongo became the world's longest-serving non-monarch ruler.
