The Central African Republic’s Constitutional Court has validated the results of July’s constitutional referendum, affirming that the “yes” camp won by 95.3% against the “no” camp, which garnered 4.97%.

The Constitutional Court therefore validates the new constitution of July 30, 2023. The validated results showed that 57.23% took part in the elections out of about 1.7 million registered voters.

The new constitution raises the presidential term from five to seven years and scraps its two-term limit, giving President Faustin Archange Touadera a green light to seek a third term in office. Touadera proposed the changes to the constitution last year, arguing that the new constitution would help the country develop.
