Former  Central African Republic Prime Minister Faustin-Archange Touadera is set to be inaugurated today as president following his victory in the 14 February presidential run-off election aimed at bringing stability in a country hit by conflict since 2013.

Several dignitaries, including Chadian President Idriss Deby and French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, are expected to attend the ceremony in the capital, Bangui.

Mr Touadera has promised to focus on restoring stability in a country divided along religious and ethnic lines.

It is estimated that about a fifth of the population fled their homes after conflict broke out in 2013, when mainly Muslim rebels took power in CAR, which has a majority Christian population.

The rebels later handed power to a transitional government, which steered the country towards elections.
