Last Sunday a constitutional referendum took place in the Central African Republic, a state torn by religious wars and coups. According to the new Constitution, coups are considered crimes without limitation period and those who participate in the violent change of regime are prohibited to occupy public posts for life. The new Constitution has both supporters and opponents, only in CAR capital Bangui two people died and 20 were injured in the clashes between them. Referendum is considered to be the test run before the presidential elections, which are due in two weeks, on December 27, 2015. In the photo: a polling station in Bangui.
