A Coalition leader in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Felix Tshisekedi has proposed a six month transition without the current President Joseph Kabila who has overstayed in power after end of his tenure last year.
Tshisekedi said that if the elections are not held in December 2017 as agreed to in an agreement last New Year’s Eve, that there should be a six-month transition without Kabila.
Although elections are supposed to take place before end of this year, as agreed to by the opposition and government, the electoral commission and government have occasionally warned that due to unavoidable reasons, elections might not be held at the end of this year.
They claim that upheaval in the restive Kasai region has made it impossible to register voters in that area.
Kabila, president since 2001, when his father was assassinated was due to leave office last December, at the end of his second and constitutionally mandated last term, but last fall cited problems in voter rolls in delaying the polls.
