Central African Republic: 34 electoral advisers to aid during elections

The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) has so far hosted 34 electoral advisers to support the Central African authorities in the organization of the next elections scheduled in the late 2020 and the early 2021, according to a MINUSCA press release on Wednesday.

The advisers will be staying both in the Central African capital Bangui and in the sixteen prefectures in the country to support the National Election Authority (ANE), the structure responsible for preparing and organizing elections in the Central African Republic, after the press release.

In addition to electoral advisers, MINUSCA soldiers and police continue to work with national and international partners to secure the upcoming presidential and legislative elections, said Vladimir Monteiro, spokesperson for MINUSCA, during a briefing.

During the last African Union summit, United Nations Secretary General António Guterres and Central African President Faustin-Archange Touadéra took notice of the progress made and the challenges linked to the preparation of elections in the Central African Republic, recalled Mr. Monteiro.
