Central African Republic’s Constitutional Court confirmed the re-election of President Faustin-Archange Touadera in the first round of a presidential election on Dec. 27 with 53.16% of the vote.

The country’s electoral commission had provisionally declared Touadera as winner of the vote, which was marred by violence, with 53.9%.

The court reduced the score to 53.16% because ballots in two towns were cancelled over irregularities, the court said.
