CAR holds long-delayed election

 

Central African Republic is holding elections today after many delays. A move that many hope will end nearly three years of sectarian violence after a 2013 coup. Today’s election comes after the most recent delay from December 27 to allow more time to deal with technical difficulties.

Security is high, with U.N. peacekeepers deployed to sensitive areas. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for all national stakeholders to commit themselves to ensuring that the elections are conducted in a peaceful and credible manner.

More than 1.8 million people are expected to vote, choosing among some 30 presidential candidates and many others running for the legislature.
