The AU said it noted a calm atmosphere in the offices visited, properly sealed ballot boxes, ink on the voter’s fingers, a bill in accordance with procedures and minutes signed by the members of the polling stations.
On the other hand, the organization notes a delay in the opening of the majority of the offices visited and the weak presence of the candidates’ representatives in the polling stations. The same observation for Ceeac, which adds that it noted that soldiers had voted in their barracks, indicates the head of the mission, Evariste Mabi Mulumba:
