Bangui (Central African Republic) (AFP) - The first round legislative vote in the Central African Republic held in December has been cancelled over "numerous irregularities," the Constitutional Court announced Monday.

The December 30 vote, which along with a presidential vote was expected to turn a page on the restive country's worst sectarian violence, was marred by "numerous irregularities and the involvement of candidates in them," the court president Zacharie Ndoumba said.
