The entire EUCLID family is pleased to share the good news that Pr Faustin Touadera, former Rector of the University of Bangui, and former Prime Minister, was confirmed last Saturday as the winner of the democratic presidential elections which took place between last December 2015 and February 2016 in the Central African Republic. Touadéra was a key figure in the creation of the “Euclid” initiative in 2005/2006 and personally signed the intergovernmental instrument of participation on behalf of his country in 2010. After leaving the post of Prime Minister in 2013, Pr Touadera remained in close contact with EUCLID and became EUCLID’s High Steward in 2014.
