President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame posts his ballot,  in Kigali, Friday, Dec. 18, 2015. Rwandans are voting in a referendum to decide if President Paul Kagame should be allowed to extend his time in power. Kagame, 58, is ineligible to run in 2017 because the Rwandan constitution limits a president to two terms. But if Rwandans vote to change the term restriction, Kagame would be able to run for an additional seven-year term and then two-five terms. He could possibly stay in power until 2034. (AP Photo)
