Opposition parties, civil society organizations and Central African Republic (RCA) figures have called for President Faustin Archange Touaderá to convene a dialogue process within three days to address the country’s political crisis.
The signatories “invited” the President to “immediately” hold a “national consultation” in the capital, Bangui, and emphasized his “readiness” to “fully engage in solving the crisis”.
“If the agreement is not called up within three days, we will organize civil disobedience acts until this call is made,” they warned.
The letter stressed “the continued deterioration in the security situation” in the country and emphasized that just a few months after the end of Touaderá’s mandate, “more than 80 percent of the territory was occupied by armed groups, mostly assisted by foreign mercenaries, who were supported by them. “
