Burundi's Elections Process


Press Statement
John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
July 24, 2015


Today’s announcement of Burundi’s presidential electoral results is the culmination of a deeply flawed electoral process marked by violence and a disregard for the civil and human rights of the citizens of Burundi. The United States is deeply disappointed by President Nkurunziza’s violation of the Arusha Agreement and use of undemocratic means to maintain power through an electoral process that was neither credible nor legitimate. It is imperative that the Government of Burundi re-engage in a meaningful, serious dialogue with opposition and civil society leaders to reach a consensus on the way forward for Burundi to regain the trust and confidence of its citizens and the international community, and prevent even greater instability, refugee flows, and violence.
