Rebel coalition in Central African Republic says to observe three-day ceasefire ahead of elections

Ahead of the elections to be held on December 27, a rebel coalition that has been fighting the government in the Central African Republic called to observe a three-day ceasefire.

The Coalition of Patriots for Change (CPC) that began an offensive against the government last week, in a statement issued, said, “A 72-hour unilateral ceasefire… will be observed across the country by all patriots’ fighting troops.”

It must be noted that the CPC was created by the armed groups on December 19 who accused incumbent President Faustin Archange Touadera, the frontrunner in the December 27 elections, of involvement to fix the vote.
