More than 7 years after the coup d'état of a coalition of armed groups with a Muslim majority, the Séléka, which overthrew President François Bozizé in 2013, the first round of Presidential and legislative elections are scheduled for December 27, but uncertainty prevails today as to the possibility of holding them within this period, significant delays having arisen in their organization, in particular the registration of voters.
Mr. Touadéra, 63, was elected in February 2016 with 62.71% of the vote, already in a territory largely in the hands of rebel militias and the scene of murderous abuses. This will continue to be the case in December, despite the signing in February 2019 of a peace accord between the 14 main rebel armed groups and the government. The main rival of Mr. Touadéra should be, this time, Mr. Bozizé, back for a year in the country, if his candidacy is validated.
