South Africa calls for calm ahead of the announcement of the official election results in the DRC
South Africa joins SADC, the AU and many other international organisations in awaiting the election results to be announced by the Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC) Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI). Any other body of civil society should refrain from announcing any results of the elections, which may undermine peace and stability in the DRC, as well as multilateral processes. We urge all leaders from different sectors of society to be responsible and wait for the election results from CENI.
