The African Union dispatches a high-level emissary to the Comoros

At the request of the Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union (AU), Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, and as part of the AU’s support to the stabilization process of the Comoros, former President Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania undertook a one day visit to Moroni on 30 November 2015. The mission took place against the backdrop of the elections scheduled to take place in February and April 2016, for the Governors of the Autonomous Islands and for the rotating presidency of the Union of the Comoros. The successful holding of these elections will go a long way to consolidating the remarkable gains recorded by the Comoros over the past decade, following the protracted separatist and institutional crisis that was resolved thanks to the efforts led by the AU with the support of the larger international community. The objective of the visit was to impress upon the Comorian stakeholders the imperative of demonstrating a high sense of responsibility and contributing to the holding of peaceful, regular and transparent elections in 2016, in line with the relevant provisions of the Comorian Constitution, including those relating to the rotating presidency of the Union of the Comoros.
