In Congo-Brazzaville, voting for the legislative elections began on July 10, pending Monday, July 4, 2022, for the agents of the army, police and gendarmerie. If the operation on the whole started without incident, the election commission noted some shortcomings, especially in two constituencies in western Cuvette (northwest) where the offices will open earlier this Tuesday.

With their berets, wearing their uniforms, ballot papers and military IDs in hand, the elements of the Republican Guard were most to vote in the first office from the center of the Nganga Edouard School. Before going to the polls, they all had the right to vote by the chief assessor in this office, where we counted more than 1,200 registered voters: “Legislative elections. Here we have four candidates and you should choose one of them. You check below either the X sign or the + sign. That’s all.”
In front of the buildings that house the second and third offices, there is an athletics track where the candidates for the matriculation exam did practical sports tests at the same time. Scheduled for 7:00 local time, voting began earlier, according to this national observer who requested anonymity: “It started at 6:30 and we see that there is discipline. I am in the first office where I see our police friends voting. We can say that, on the whole, things are going well. ”
In the inland constituencies Mbomo and Mbama in western Cuvette, the delivery of election materials has been delayed. There, the police will perform their civic task on Tuesday, according to the nomination committee.
