Chad: Presidential vote slated for April 10

Chad’s presidential election will take place on April 10, 2016 the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) has said. A run-off is scheduled to come off on May 9.

According CENI, aspiring candidates have from February 10 to 29 to file their candidature. President Idriss Deby, after a referendum in 2005, amended the constitution to repeal the originally set two five-year terms term limits.

Reports say there is a growing movement to dissuade Deby from seeking another term. The leading opposition boycotted the election held in 2011.
