Chad set for first election since end of civilian rule

The authorities in Chad have said the country’s delayed presidential elections will take place in May.

The vote is supposed to mark the end of a political transition that began in 2021 when former President Idriss Déby died after three decades in power.

In defiance of the constitution, his son Gen Mahamat Déby was named his successor and promised to return the country to civilian rule.

The transition was delayed and Mr Déby is expected to stand as a candidate.

Analysts say the electoral commission is far from neutral and the opposition fears an extension of the Déby dynasty in Chad.
