The opposition is actively pursuing legal avenues to contest the election of Azali Assoumani, who was declared the winner in the first round by the Supreme Court following the January 14th election.

After first approaching the electoral division of the Supreme Court and subsequently reiterating this approach, Daoudou Abdallah Mohamed, who finished third in the recent presidential election, has turned to the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights to request a thorough examination of the election process and to seek the complete annulment of both the presidential and gubernatorial elections.

Daoudou Abdallah Mohamed’s lawyer, Me Saïd Larifou, has expressed regret over the failure of the Comorian Supreme Court to consider the evidence presented by Azali’s opponents.

“The decision of the Comorian Supreme Court is devoid of evidence, and the Court has not articulated the rationale behind its decision. Nevertheless, we remain highly confident and resolute in our quest for the truth regarding this election. We dare to hope for a favorable response to establish and affirm the truth of this electoral process,” he stated.
