24 Dec 2020: The Arc-en-Ciel Network (RAC), supported by EISA CAR, held a press conference on the latest security developments in CAR in the run up to 2020 elections

The "Arc-en-Ciel" Network (RAC), supported by EISA CAR, held a press conference on the latest security developments in the country and their impact on the electoral process (see Declaration n° 001 du 24 decembre 2020 relative a la situation politique du moment et les preparatifs de l'ane au scrutin du 27 decembre 2020).

The objective of this press conference was to highlight that the elections of December 27, 2020 have proceeded on schedule, despite attacks by armed groups in different regions of the country. However, held in uncertain logistical, technical and security conditions, the quality of these elections is uncertain.

The conference was moderated by Fr Nakombo Frédéric, National Coordinator of the RAC. It was attended by the members of the RAC coordination team, journalists from the national press and correspondents from RFI and France 24.
