Immediately after the vote defense and security forces on Monday, an independent candidate for deputy in the constituency of Nkayi in the south took the direction of Brazzaville. He came to ask the General Directorate of Electoral Affairs (DGAE) why his name, logo and photo were not on any ballot.

And yet, the name and logo in question did indeed appear on the final list of candidates published on June 25. ” If such failures continue, believe me, the vote will go very badly on July 10 in Nkayi “, he warned, visibly angry.
