Central African Republic - Elections – Statement by Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development (14 February 2016).

I welcome the second round of the presidential election in the Central African Republic, which coincided with the first round of the general election.

The ballot is a decisive step forward for the country and the region.

Together with its African and international partners, France calls on all the political players to wait calmly for the relevant authorities to publish the results.
