Mauritania’s strongest opposition movement, the Union of Democratic Forces (RFD) has announced the candidacy of its leader, Ahmad Ould Daddah, for president in the country’s July 18 elections. Mauritania’s first democratically elected government was overtaken by a coup last year. The Daily Star reports that Ould Daddah and the coup’s leader General Mohammad Ould Abdel-Aziz are favorites to win the election.  Ely Ould Mohammad Vall, the country’s leader between 2005 and 2007 may also  join the race.
