The Union of the Comoros is an archipelago of three islands east of Mozambique and north of Madagascar. An autonomous colony of France since 1961, the people of Comoros voted for independence in 1974 and gained independence the following year. (A fourth island, Mayotte, voted to remain under French administration.) A series of coups over the next two decades contributed to ongoing political instability.
Conflict erupted in 1997 when the islands of Anjouan and Moheli declared independence from the Comoros. After four years of coups and infighting, citizens voted in 2001 to reconvene as a union of semi-autonomous states. Elections followed, and the union was stable until 2007, with the island of Anjouan broke away. Comoran and African Union troops landed on Anjouan in 2008 and deposed its secession leader, returning the island to the union.
Following peaceful elections in 2010 in which President IkililouDhoinine was inaugurated. Legislative elections in 2015 in Comoros were declared free and transparent by international observers.
