Paragraph 24

As concerns local elections, on 14 January 2007, President Moisu postponed such elections scheduled for 20 January to 18 February 2007 because of an opposition threat to boycott the elections due to concerns over fraudulent voting rolls. The new date was the last possible date within the timeline of the electoral period. The Assembly introduced a transitional provision into the electoral code, which provided the legal basis for the presidential decree.
