Central African Republic voters went to the polls for the first round of legislative elections on the same day of the first round of presidential elections on Dec. 30, 2015.

However, due to numerous irregularities raised by candidates in the legislative elections, the Constitutional Court cancelled the results of the legislative elections and ordered the first round of the same elections be held together with the presidential runoff on Feb. 14, 2016.

According to official results announced by the Constitutional Court, after the first round, 45 members of parliament were declared elected. The remaining 96 members of parliament will be elected in the second round that is scheduled for March 11, 2016.

Touadera who was an independent candidate in the presidential elections, is counting on the support of the coalition that supported him to win a majority in the future parliament.
