Bangui – Ten opposition candidates in the Central African Republic's presidential election on Tuesday called for the vote – won by incumbent Faustin Archange Touadera – to be annulled in view of "numerous irregularities".
"We call for a straightforward annulment" of the presidential and legislative elections on 27 December, the candidates said in a joint statement.
The country's electoral authority, the ANE, late on Monday declared Touadera winner of the 27 December vote with 53.92% of the ballot – a figure that, if confirmed by the CAR's top court, means a runoff will not be needed.
