Djibloho, officially the Administrative City of Djibloho,[1] is the newest province of Equatorial Guinea, formally established by law in 2017.[2] The administrative city was initially carved out of Añisok, a district in Wele-Nzas,[3] on 1 August 2015,[4] and was created to eventually replace Malabo as Equatorial Guinea's future national capital.[5]

Administration[edit]

Djibloho comprises two urban districts, Oyala and Mbere.[4] The capital is at Oyala,[6] renamed Ciudad de la Paz ("City of Peace") in 2017.[7] In the 2017 national parliamentary election, Djibloho will elect one senator and one deputy.[8]
