DR Congo vote delay ‘cannot be ruled out’


- Advertisment -

The spokesman of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s electoral commission, Jean-Pierre Kalamba, has told the BBC that he cannot rule out a postponement of elections scheduled for Sunday.

He said that if the electoral material was not ready it would be better to delay the vote for a few days rather than rush the process.

Last week, a fire gutted one of the main electoral commission warehouses, destroying more than two-thirds of the voting machines allocated for the capital, Kinshasa.

The country is around the size of western Europe – and delivering material to the 75,000 polling stations is already a challenge.
