In February 2017, the elections had been postponed, with President Déby citing logistical constraints. He said at the time that they would not take place until 2019, angering the opposition.
Idriss Déby met representatives of various opposition parties on Friday, including the Front de l’opposition nouvelle pour l’alternance et le changement (Fonac), which rejected the conclusions of a recent forum on institutional reforms boycotted by the entire opposition.
During his meeting with opponents, Idriss Déby also mentioned a possible reform of the National Framework for Political Dialogue (CNDP), a structure responsible for preparing the elections and bringing together members of the ruling party, the opposition and civil society.

Groups criticise Kenya’s census figures
Groups has criticised the released Kenya’s population census figures stating that the results are not accurate.
It found that the total population of the country is now 47.6 million, nine million more than in 2009.
But some regions have experienced a decrease in population.
These outcomes can be hugely controversial because the size of the local population has important implications for the level of government funding they receive.
Kenya’s population is made up of many different ethnic groups, closely aligned to competing political parties.
The government has yet to release all the data on the ethnic composition of the country, but the changes in population in certain regions from this latest census have already caused arguments.
The outcome of such surveys can embolden or weaken claims made by groups for political representation or resources.
In one area of the north-east territories bordering Ethiopia and Somalia, the census indicates a decrease in the population, prompting local political leaders looking to retain funding for their provinces to question the veracity of the survey
