Local media has reported that election campaigns have begun in Congo-Brazzaville ahead of the presidential poll in just over two weeks’ time.

It is said that the incumbent, Denis Sassou Nguesso, is seeking a fourth term. Apart from a five-year period he has been leading the country since 1979 and will face six opposition candidates. Including two former ministers, Mathias Dzon and Guy-Brice Parfait Kolélas, who have become fierce critics of the president.
