UN joins partners in pledging support for President-elect of Central African Republic

New York, Mar 5 (Just Earth News/IBNS): The United Nations on Friday, in a joint statement with other multilateral organizations, welcomed the final results of the second round of the presidential elections in the Central African Republic (CAR) announced earlier this week, congratulating President-elect Faustin-Archange Touadéra.

On 1 March, the Transitional Constitutional Court announced the outcome of the run-off between two former prime ministers,  Touadéra and Anicet-Georges Dologuélé. About 62 per cent of voters chose  Touadera, according to media reports.

The UN, the African Union (AU), the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), the European Union (EU) and the International Organization of La Francophonie expressed their support for the determination of the President-elect to further the efforts to promote dialogue and national reconciliation.

They also paid tribute to  Dologuélé and the Central African people, who have demonstrated their commitment to efforts to find durable solutions in support of peace, reconciliation, and economic and social development in their country.

Welcoming the essential role played by the Transitional Authority in support of a return to peace, the organizations reiterated their commitment to continue efforts to support the completion of the transition, including through the holding of the second round of legislative elections.

The international community will continue to lend its support to the efforts of the new Central African Republic authorities through a responsible partnership, they said.

The country plunged into a crisis in early 2013 when François Bozizé, President at that time, was ousted by mainly Muslim Seleka fighters. Christian anti-Balaka militias responded by attacking the Muslim minority.

The UN has played a major role in seeking to restore peace in the country, with military and police units from the 11,000-strong UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization ion in the country (MINUSCA) joining soldiers from the French Sangaris force and local security teams at polling stations to ensure a peaceful vote on 30 December 2015.
