Vote on reform of electoral commission in DRC

date: 14 December 2012

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders is satisfied to note that the Parliament of the DRC has approved the law on the reform of the Independent National Electoral Commission. This took place just before the parliamentary session ended.

This reform is crucial for preparing the continuation of the electoral cycle in better conditions than during the presidential elections.

Going ahead with the provincial and local elections is of crucial importance in order to further establish democracy in the DRC and to bring the citizens and the authorities closer.

The Minister hopes that this legislation will be speedily promulgated and implemented.
