With the holding of elections on 30 December 2018, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is at a historic moment on the path towards a democratic transition. International and local observers have given their verdict. The EU joins calls from, among others, the African Union Election Observation Mission and the Chairperson of the AU Commission to ensure that the results which are due to be announced reflect the votes cast by the Congolese people.
All political actors in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have the responsibility to contribute to the success of this transition in a spirit of reconciliation and peace. The EU, for its part, remains ready to support this process in close consultation with its partners, particularly UN and African partners.
