DRC Catholic leaders seek poll re-evaluation

Kinshasa - Members of Democratic Republic of Congo's powerful Catholic clergy on Thursday called for the election commission to re-evaluate "serious errors" in national elections that gave victory to the incumbent president — or failing that, to resign.

According to News 24, a group of 35 bishops said November's vote was badly organised and called on the commission to correct errors in order to regain the population's trust.

Last November's election was only the second democratic vote in Congo's 51-year history, and the first to be organised by the Congolese government rather than by the international community.
