Chad – The Comoros – Djibouti – Presidential elections (April 8 to 10, 2016)


Several elections (Chad, the Comoros, Djibouti) took place on April 8 and 10 in Africa. On the whole, they were conducted without major incident, generally with high voter turnout, reflecting the strong democratic aspirations of the populations.

Like the rest of the international community, we are awaiting the final results.

In any event, we call on the electoral bodies to tabulate the results transparently, without being subjected to pressure, and to take the recommendations made by the observer missions into consideration.

We are vigilant as regards respect for the freedom of the press.
