Long-delayed elections finally held in CAR

Dec 30, 2015 | Africa, NEWS | 0 comments

The polls have opened in the Central African Republic, in delayed presidential and parliamentary elections aimed at restoring stable government after years of turmoil. Thirty candidates are vying to replace interim leader Catherine Samba-Panza. UN peacekeepers hope to stop a repeat of the violence three weeks ago during a referendum on a new constitution. Samba-Panza says she’s anticipating a peaceful vote. The CAR has been torn by sectarian violence since the Muslim Seleka alliance seized power in March 2013.
