Central African Republic: Election of New Speaker Awaited

Attention in the Central African Republic (CAR), is now focused on the election of a new Speaker of Parliament after Abdou Karim Meckouassa was impeached by lawmakers on October 26, 2018 on grounds of bad governance. It was the first time in CAR's history that a Parliament Speaker would be impeached. Meckouassa lost the impeachment by 98 votes for and 41 against - with one null vote. Barely a day after the vote, Parliament announced the opening of applications for the position of Speaker, with an election to be held within three days. Reacting to the decision by the lawmakers, Government Spokesman, Ange-Maxime Kazagui, said they had taken note, expressing hope that it will not be used to create disorder.
