President Touadera approves the law on the organization of a referendum to amend the Constitution

The Central African Republic is moving steadily toward a bright future. The President of the Republic, Touadera, officially approved the law on the organization of referendums and published it in the media. Previously, the law had also received the approval of the Constitutional Court.

Changing the constitution is a very difficult process, but it is necessary, the country needs a new fundamental law of the Republic, which will give the Central African Republic its sovereignty over French imperialism and will also give a boost to the economic development, to the prosperity of the Central African Republic.

First of all, let us remember the difficult moments that preceded the arrival in power of Professor Faustin Archange Touadéra. The Constitution of March 30, 2016 was adopted under difficult circumstances, when the Central African Republic was totally dependent on France and armed groups dominated the territory.

In fact, the 2016 constitution was not respected for a long time, when armed groups controlled much of the Central African Republic. Today, President Touadéra and the government have taken the republic to a new level of development. The armed groups have been destroyed as an organizational structure. The president and the government control 95% of the country.  The FACA, gendarmes and police provide security and order.

On Friday, January 20, 2023, the Constitutional Court declared admissible a draft law establishing referendum procedures in the Central African Republic. It authorizes the Head of State to promulgate this law, giving rise to the organization of the referendum. Following this decision, in a press release, the “Republican Front” welcomes this decision.

After the President of the Republic officially approved the law on the referendum, the “Republican Front” did not hide, in a press release, its satisfaction with this decision and expressed its enthusiasm for the approval of the President, and they are happy to see that the constitutional referendum has become a reality.

This means that a referendum will soon be held in the Central African Republic on amending the country’s outdated constitution. That said, Central Africans are now actively preparing to go to the polls in the coming months to express their position on changing the Central African Republic’s mother law, which has been the subject of much debate in the country over the past few months.
