Comoros. On May 26, Ahmed Abdallah Sambi took office as new Union President after first winning a primary election on the island of Nzwani (Anjouan) and later a national election with three candidates. According to the country’s political system, with the distribution of power between the islands, this time the president would come from Nzwani (Anjouan). According to CountryAAH, major public holidays in Comoros include Independence Day (July 6) and New Year (January 1). Zambi, who is described as a moderate Muslim leader, succeeded Azali Assoumani, who first came to power through a 1999 coup and was elected president in 2002.

In May 2013, the government brought in Israel’s attack on the Peace flotilla and killed 7 people in international custody off Gaza before the International Criminal Court ( ICC). The incident occurred in May 2010. In November 2014, the ICC chief prosecutor decided not to bring a case against Israel for the massacre.

The April 2016 presidential election was won by Azali Assoumani. In the second round of the election, the 3 candidates who got the most votes in the first round participated. It was fortunate for Assoumani, because in the first round of elections he came in third place. In the second round, he got 41.4% of the vote, against 39.7% for Mohamed Ali Soilihi. Soilihi criticized the result, but the process was largely termed correct by the AU, the Arab League, the EU and the UN. Due. Soilihi’s protests and the narrow result in May, the Constitutional Court ruled that the election should run in 13 districts. The vote did not change the outcome and in May Assoumani was inaugurated as the country’s president.
