The G5, which includes the African Union, the Economic Community of Central African States, France and the EU, would help the CAR to achieve transparent, credible elections accepted by all parties.

“The G5, a group of states and international partner institutions of the Central African Republic (CAR), is determined to support the ongoing electoral process in the CAR, ” Lizbeth Cullity, Deputy Head of the United Nations multidimensional integrated mission for stabilization in CAR (MINUSCA) said.

“CAR’s partners each have a mandate that determines their interventions. For the specific case of MINUSCA, it will, in the coming days, promote the enrollment of voters from 71 centers in the west of the country facing insecurity,”  Cullity said, after meeting the Central African President Faustin-Archange Touadéra on Monday.

“The Central African Head of state trusts international partners to support the electoral process for the next presidential and legislative elections,” Cullity noted.

Due to some practical difficulties in completing the enrollment of voters, the Central African government has submitted to parliament the possibility of reviewing certain provisions of the electoral law, so that a possible delay is constitutionally tolerable.

“G5 members want the elections to be transparent, credible and accepted by all parties,” Cullity said.

According to the latest electoral calendar, the first round of the next Central African elections will be held on December 27.

The G5 includes the United States, France, Russia, the European Union, the African Union, the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), the World Bank, and MINUSCA.
