Democratic Republic of the Congo / Nationwide electoral review process


KINSHASA, Dem. Rep. of Congo (DRC) March 31, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Daily press briefing by the office of the spokesperson for the UN secretary-general


The UN Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo says it will support the nationwide electoral review process for local elections.  The operation will kick off in the Kinshasa and Bas-Congo provinces in June and will expand in August to the rest of the vast country.  The Secretary-General’s Special Representative, Alan Doss, has welcomed the move and he has assured the Congolese Independent Electoral Commission of UN support along the lines of the Mission’s mandate.  He says the review process for local elections will complete a national endeavour that began in 2005 with the identification and enrolment of all eligible voters.
