Facts about Gabon

Area: total: 267 ,667 sq km land: 257 ,667 sq km water: 10 ,000 sq km
Background: Only two autocratic presidents have ruled Gabon since independence from France in 1960. The current president of Gabon , El Hadj Omar BONGO Ondimba - one of the longest-serving heads of state in the world - has dominated the country's political scene for four decades. President BONGO introduced a nominal multiparty system and a new constitution in the early 1990s. However , allegations of electoral fraud during local elections in 2002-03 and the presidential elections in 2005 have exposed the weaknesses of formal political structures in Gabon. Gabon's political opposition remains weak , divided , and financially dependent on the current regime. Despite political conditions , a small population , abundant natural resources , and considerable foreign support have helped make Gabon one of the more prosperous and stable African countries.
