“Voter fraud could undermine upcoming DRC elections”
An international human rights watchdog has told the United Nations Security Council that potential voter fraud during the voter registration process in the Democratic Republic of Congo could undermine upcoming elections in December.
Some 46 million registered voters will finally go to the polls on December 23 after several years of delay to cast ballots in Presidential, Legislative and Provincial elections expected to end the incumbency of President Joseph Kabila.
But the international community remains on edge due to a worsening political, economic, human rights and humanitarian situation in the country that could undermine any future electoral process.
