Chad President In Power Since 1990, Wins 5th Term

President Idriss Déby of Chad won a fifth term in office, the national election commission announced late Thursday, soundly defeating more than a dozen challengers to remain leader of a country that is central to Africa’s fight against Islamic militants.

Mr. Déby earned 61.5 percent of the votes cast on Election Day, April 10, according to provisional results.

Opposition parties have however said the vote counting lacked credibility. But then he is going to be in power again.
