CAR leader: Vote postponed

2010-04-29 17:08

Bangui - Presidential and legislative polls scheduled in the Central African Republic (CAR) for May 16 have been postponed, President Francois Bozize announced on Thursday, without fixing a new date.

"The elections will not be held on May 16. We will go to the polls when all the parties involved in these elections, including the international community, will be ready," said Bozize after a meeting with the electoral commission and political parties.

Bozize, who came to power in a coup before winning the last presidential election, also suggested that failure to hold elections soon would mean him remaining president beyond the formal end of his mandate, June 11.

"We will leave the rest to the national assembly, because it could be that June 11 will be overtaken," he said.
