Red Flags in DR Congo’s Electoral Process: Time for Consequences


Note: This blog originally appeared on

Although the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo promised to hold elections by the end of this year, there are strong warning signs that a credible democratic transition is at risk. Now is a key moment for the United States, African states, and Europe to influence that process and get the country back on track. In its 58-year history, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has yet to have a peaceful transfer of power through democratic elections. Current President Joseph Kabila’s term of office expired in December 2016, but his government has repeatedly failed to hold elections. Each time the Kabila administration delays elections, it trots out a smoke screen of technical excuses, and some of these are the government’s own making. The true reason Congo has not held elections is lack of political will – because the will rests principally with the financial interests of those in power.
