Voters in the Central African Republic were casting their ballots Sunday in delayed legislative elections and a presidential run-off which they hope will bring peace after the country's worst sectarian violence since independence in 1960. "What we want first and foremost is security to give a new impetus to the country," said a soldier who gave his name as Ndadder as he waited to vote in PK5, a Muslim-majority area in the capital Bangui which had been the scene of bloody religious violence. The first round on December 30 was won by ex-premier Anicet Georges Dologuele, a 58-year-old former central banker known as "Mr Clean" for his attempts to bring transparency to murky public finances when in office.
