DR Congo Presidential Elections Scheduled For December 2023

The Democratic Republic of Congo will hold its next presidential polls on December 20, 2023, the country’s electoral commission declared on Saturday.

In a statement, the electoral commission’s president said; “Persisting insecurity in some parts of the territory would be a challenge to holding a free, democratic and transparent vote.”

The announcement comes amid the problems the M23 rebels have placed on the country, displacing tens of thousands of people from their homes.

In the country, the presidential elections is held at the same time as parliamentary, provincial and local elections.

Current President, Felix Tshisekedi came to power in January 2019, succeeding Joseph Kabila. Tshisekedi’s inauguration ceremony capped more than two years of turmoil sparked by Kabila’s refusal to step down.
