Comoros. Former President Said Djohar, who was toppled in September 1995, was allowed to return to his home country in January after negotiations with the country’s government, but only to play a symbolic role in political life. In the March presidential election, the candidate of the National Union for Democracy in the Comoros (Union national pour la democratie aux Comores, UNDC), Mohammed Taki Abdulkarim, received a two-thirds majority. During the election campaign, Taki emerged as a traditional nationalist with Muslim values. He was sworn in as president on March 25 and a few days later appointed Tajidine ben Said Massounde as prime minister. In October, a referendum was held on a new constitution. 85% of the population then approved, among other things. that Islam should characterize the legislation.
