Voting for the first round of the Central African Republic general election was held as scheduled.

Voting for the first round of the Central African Republic general election was held as scheduled.

According to AFP local time on the 27th, although the opening of the polling point in the capital Bangui has been delayed, the first round of voting by the President of the Central African Republic and the National Assembly was held as scheduled on the morning of December 27.

Due to the tense security situation in the recent Central African elections, armored vehicles have been deployed outside polling points in Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic, and United Nations peacekeepers patrolled the streets.

It is reported that the presidential candidate who won more than half of the votes in the first round of the presidential election will win the election, otherwise the second round of the presidential election will be held, and the current President of the Central African Republic, Towadra, is considered the most likely to win and achieve re-election among all presidential candidates.

In addition, about 1,500 candidates will run for 140 seats in the Central African National Assembly.
