EU: “historic moment” of Congo elections
“With the holding of elections on December 30, the Democratic Republic of Congo is at a historic moment towards a democratic transition. International and local observers have spoken. The EU joins calls from, among others, the African Union Election Observation Mission and the Chairperson of the AU Commission, to ensure that the results of the proclamation are in line with the vote of the Congolese people” said the European External Action Service (EEAS) spokesperson.
“All political actors in the Democratic Republic of Congo have the responsibility to contribute to the success of this transition in a spirit of reconciliation and peace. The EU, for its part, remains ready to support this process in close consultation with its partners, particularly UN and African partners.”
