Bujumbura – “From the reports of our election observers, we recognize that the elections were generally held in a peaceful manner. However, we deplore several irregularities regarding the freedom and transparency of the electoral process, as well as the impartiality in the treatment of candidates and voters, which must mark truly democratic elections”, says a message sent to Agenzia Fides by the Episcopal Conference of Burundi, on the presidential, parliamentary and local elections which were held on 20 May.
