Statement by the Spokesperson on the situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Yesterday in Addis Ababa the high-level consultative meeting on the situation in DRC called for the suspension of the proclamation of the final results of the elections, due to serious doubts on the conformity of the provisional results declared. A delegation of Heads of State and the Chairperson of the AU Commission will soon travel to Kinshasa.
 
The European Union joins the African Union in inviting all Congolese actors to work constructively with this delegation to find a way out of the post-electoral crisis which respects how the Congolese people voted and to achieve the historic aim of the country's first democratic alternation of power.
