Ban Ki-moon

The holding of the run-off presidential election in Cape Verde last Sunday has been welcomed by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Mr. Ban congratulates Jorge Carlos Fonseca for winning the election which was widely acclaimed by international observers as peaceful and credible.

He commends the people of Cape Verde for participating in the voting in an orderly manner.

The Secretary-General says this participation testifies to their commitment to preserving and enhancing the country's long-standing tradition of democracy and good governance.

The United Nations, Mr. Ban adds, is ready to continue supporting the people and government of Cape Verde in their efforts to promote peace and development in their country and the sub region of West Africa.
