The first challenge that we need to watch for is the distribution of Mandates for political parties. 13,725 mandates are supposed to be distributed to various representatives of the parties by 6:00AM due to the fact that the polling station can not accommodate for all the 54 representatives of political parties, members of polling stations, supervisors, national and international observers and voters. The plan is for the representatives of the political parties to enter the centers and polling stations in groups of ten with a rotation scheduled every 2 hours

Seventy candidates are currently in the race for president. However, the run off will be between two of three candidates.
