Campaigns for elections on 10 April kick off in CHAD. President Idriss Déby of Chad is running for re-election again this April. He amended the constitution to remove the position of prime minister and he now has absolute power. This would allow him remain in power till 2033, when he'll be 80. He's been ruling for 30 years, since 1990. This would be his 6th term. The main opposition leader, Saleh Kebzabo, pulled out of the election race accusing the long standing head of state of “militarizing" the process.
The intimidation of opposition does not create an environment of a free and fair electoral process!
