Tidjani stressed that a 'yes' vote is crucial for maintaining national unity and stability. This appeal from the PDR aligns with their endorsement of President Deby's leadership during this transitional phase.

Political Landscape in Chad

Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has set ambitious objectives for an upcoming tour of Sudan, Chad, and Libya. The aim is to lay the groundwork for lasting peace in the violence-ridden region of Darfur. During these discussions, Ban will deliberate with President Deby on the planned deployment of a U.N.-backed EU peace force. In contrast, the 'yes' camp, led by Prime Minister Saleh Kabzabo, is actively organizing events to maximize participation in the forthcoming vote. Advocates for the 'no' vote are encouraging the population to collect their voter cards, confident in the prevailing sentiment against the proposed constitutional amendments.
