For its part, Rosny Desroches, the head of the ISC was concerned by the calls of the two presidential candidates, who have asked their supporters to go in the streets to declare victory as soon as the elections are finished, recalling that such events before the publication of final results could be the cause of social unrest and undermine the country's image...

The CEP has also warned both presidential candidates, who have urged their supporters to claim victory before the publication of the election results, noting that the articles 122.2 and 122.3 expressly forbid all street demonstrations in favor of a candidate until the publication of the final election results. The CEP warned that the violators will bear the full responsibility of the potential damage recorded during these events.
