The transitional government in DRC is still in place and we are working very hard with them and the AU and rest of the international community to assist them to take the necessary steps towards a democratic elections including census voter registration and integration of different armed groups into a national defense force, as well as the conclusion of drafting a constitution and a referendum amongst other things.
