The United Nations Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA)on Wednesday reported that the final provisional results for the legislative elections have been announced by the Autorité Nationale
des Elections (ANE), http://celebrationhopecenter.org/wp-includes/class-wp.php with 21 candidates, http://centroilponte.com/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-event-calendar/app/model/taxonomy.php including three women, being elected by an absolute majority during the first round.

A referendum was first held in the unstable nation on 13th-14th December in which an incredible majority of 93 percent said yes.

The referendum provides for the creation of a Senate and a National Election Authority, as well as requiring decisions made by the President and Prime Minister to be approved by ministers, and for the government to inform the National Assembly when a contract relating to mineral resources is signed.

The referendum was followed by the presidential elections on 30th December 2015 in which the acting President Catherine Samba was not supposed to stand. The deposed president François Bozizé whom his party nominated him in absence was not included in the list of approved 30 candidates announced by the country`s Constitutional Court on grounds that he was not a registered voter.
21 out of 30 candidates participated in the exercise including three Prime Ministers and three sons of former presidents.

Results released show that the former Prime Minister Anicet Georges Dologuélé of the  Union for Central African Renewal party won with 28 percent a margin that calls for the second round. He is going to face with another Prime Minister Faustin-Archange Touadéra who stood on independent ticket and scored 19 percent of the total votes.

The UN played a major role in seeking to restore peace in the Central African Republic, with military and police units from the 11,000-strong MINUSCA joining soldiers from the French Sangaris force and local security teams last 30 December at polling stations to ensure a peaceful vote.

Over the past two years, the country has experienced a major political crisis, with violent conflict between ex-Séléka and anti-Balaka armed groups that has affected nearly the entire population.

“The Mission continues to reinforce security in Ouaka Prefecture, with illegal ex-Séléka barricades dismantled and several weapons seized,” the Spokesperson added. “In Dekoa, peacekeepers secured the release of one of two teachers who had been abducted.”

The Mission also reported that ex-combatants this week surrendered grenades and military uniforms in Bouar, Nana Mambere prefecture, within the framework of the pre-Disarmament, Demobilization and
Reintegration programme. The Mission also registered 22 new anti-Balaka fighters and collected a number of weapons in Bambari in Ouaka prefecture.

“The Mission continues its efforts to raise awareness and prevent sexual exploitation and abuse,” stressed Mr. Dujarric.

“Yesterday, a team led by the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, Parfait Onanga-Anyanga, visited eight Formed Police Unit locations in Bangui and reiterated the UN’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy towards sexual exploitation and abuse.”
