CHAD: Gen Déby Wins With 61.3% Votes

BY QFMEDITORIAL @nancyatim6

Chad's military ruler Mahamat Déby has been declared the official winner of the presidential elections, legitimising his grip on power.

Gen Déby won 61.3% of the vote, according to the state's election body, citing provisional results, while his closest rival, Prime Minister Succes Masra, won 18.53%.

Gen Déby, 40, was installed as Chad's leader by the military after his father, Idriss Déby Itno, was killed during a battle with rebel forces in April 2021.

His victory means that the Déby family's 34-year-rule will continue.
