DR Congo’s Kabila to Step Down Ahead Of Presidential Election

Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila will not stand in December’s presidential election, a spokesman said on Wednesday, announcing that former interior minister Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary would be the ruling coalition’s candidate.


The announcement by spokesman Lambert Mende at a news conference puts an end to years of speculation about whether Kabila would defy term limits to run for a third term.

  1. EXCELLENT NEWS! This announcement, clauses a chapter marred with violence and political instability and opens the doors for a new chapter that, hopefully, will foster peace and democracy in DRC. We welcome DRC in the path for social justice and democracy that in turn will bring about social and economic development for the common good of the Congolese people.
