DRC Elections 2023: A Rocky Road Ahead?


    The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) held its first presidential election in December 2018 after 40 years of an authoritarian military government (source). However, domestic and international observers have claimed that the last election was fraudulent and not completely transparent (source). The country will hold the next elections in December 2023. President Félix Tshisekedi has announced that he will run again in the DRC elections in December (source). The DRC Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) is overseeing the election process including voting lists and registration. Registration for voters began on February 18th with election campaigning due to officially start 30 days before the election (source). However, some candidates have already started advertising their campaigns for the DRC elections (source).
