Faustin Archange Touadera, a former prime minister and maths teacher standing as an independent, has been elected president of the Central African Republic.
Touadera won 63 percent of the vote compared with 37.29 for his rival Anicet-Georges Dologuele, a former banker nicknamed “Mr Clean” who had won the first round on December 30.
Toudera, 58, surprised everyone with his second place finish in the first round. He was the last premier of ex-president Francois Bozize who was ousted from power in 2013. He campaigned like most candidates promising to restore security in a country riven with tit-for-tit sectarian violence and boost the economy in the mineral-rich but dirt-poor nation.
