"Oui" (Yes) is seen written on the walls of a polling station, where a soldier of the UN peacekeeping force MINUSCA contingent is on guard on December 14, 2015.

Clashes involving rocket launchers and machine guns disrupted the polling on December 13 in the Muslim-majority PK-5 district of Bangui. The vote is seen as a test run for presidential and parliamentary elections due to take place December 27 to end more than two years of conflict between the Muslim and Christian militias.
