The second round of the legislative election in the Central African Republic was held on 27 March. The first round was held on 23 January.
The first round produced the following result:
National Convergence “Kwa Na Kwa” – 26 seats
Independents – 8 seats (5 of whom are reported to be close to President Bozizé)
MLPC (opposition) – 1 seat
It has been very difficult to get any information about the second round. However, one seemingly reliable source has presented the following figures:
National Convergence “Kwa Na Kwa” – 36 seats (total 62)
Independents – 18 seats (total 26) Presidential majority – 11 seats
MLPC (opposition) – 1 seat (total 2)
The figures do not completely tally. There are 105 deputies and 106 seats reported. However, the overwhelming strength of President Bozizé’s supporters is clear.
The opposition boycotted the second round of the election.
The names of the ministers in the new government are available here. PM Faustin Touadera was reappointed.
