Leading candidates in C. Africa's key presidential vote

Supporters hold a portrait of Central African Republic presidential candidate Anicet Georges Dologuele in BanguiThirty candidates are vying for the presidency in the volatile Central African Republic, including the son of a self-proclaimed emperor of a dirt-poor country who modelled his extravagant coronation on Napoleon’s. Bozize and Michel Djotodia, who seized power from him, have each been barred from seeking a new term in the mineral-rich country, wracked by coups, army mutinies and dictatorships since it gained independence from France in 1960. Widely known as “Mr Clean”, Dologuele, 58, worked at the Bank of Central African States, serving six central African countries that form a monetary bloc, before being named prime minister, a job he held from 1998 to 2001 under President Ange-Felix Patasse.
