Mauritania holds elections to elect a new leader

 Eligible voters in Mauritania will go to the polls on June 22 to vote for a successor to President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, who is stepping down after his constitutionally mandated second and final term in office.

 
Elections were staged in 2009, which Abdel Aziz won. He was returned to office in elections in 2014, winning in the first round.
 
Several candidated figures have already declared their intentions to run. They include former defense minister Mohamed Ould Cheikh Mohamed Ahmed, who is a close associate of the current president.
 
Others are the former head of the 2005-2007 transitional government, Sidi Mohamed Ould Boubacar; anti-slavery activist Biram Ould Dah Ould Abeid; and long-standing opposition figure Mohamed Ould Moloud.
 
If there is no outright winner in the first round of elections, a runoff vote will be held on July 6.
