    Alexandre Ferdinand Ngendet has been heading a ruling transitional council since former President Djotodia was forced from office last week. He said he won't run for the post of transitional president as the country needs a fresh start with new leadership. 

    A vote to choose who will lead the country to full elections will take place in the next few days.
