Preliminary results of the second round of legislative elections indicate that no party will get an absolute majority in the parliament, but official results are expected within 15 days, RFI said yesterday. Sunday’s voting took place without major incident, it added. Voters in the two rounds cast ballots to select 109 deputies who will make up the National Assembly. The first round was on 22 November. The UN’s Mission des Nations Unies en Republique Centrafricaine (MINURCA) helped organise and supervise the elections.
