Chad President Kicks Off Campaign For Sixth Term

Chad President Idriss Deby Itno kicks off his campaign for a sixth term, calling for unity after rival protests were banned and broken up.

The first rally since the start of the official election period was held by Deby’s Patriotic Salvation Movement (MPS) at a packed stadium in the capital, N’Djamena.

Deby, who has ruled for 30 years and is widely deemed a shoo-in for another term, says he has fought for national unity, while also drawing a line in the sand for his opponents.

On Thursday, three opposition candidates quit the race ahead of the April 11 ballot with one of them, Mahamat Yosko Brahim saying the climate was “not favourable for fair and transparent presidential elections”.

Their withdrawal leaves half a dozen candidates, including Deby, who has ruled the country since 1990.

In recent months, demonstrations calling for his resignation have been banned and violently dispersed.

    Hey, this is Eric and I ran across a few minutes ago.

    Looks great… but now what?

    By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

    Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

    Here’s an idea…

    How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

    It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

    That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Pretty sweet – AND effective.
