Voters and the international community are still awaiting the results of Wednesday’s landmark election in the Central African Republic. Partial results show two former Prime ministers running neck-to-neck.
On Saturday, the National Electoral Authority announced results from 64 percent of votes giving Faustin Archange Touadera 30 thousand, 999 ballots to 28 thousand,162 for banker Anicet Georges Dologuele.
The elections are seen as a key step towards stability, after years of deadly violence.
Nearly two million people registered to vote in the election, initially scheduled to take place on December 27, but delayed because more time was needed for the distribution of ballots and the training of electoral agents.
