The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has extended the deadline to register for the upcoming elections to August 20, 2009. The IEC made the decision on Tuesday, responding to numerous calls to give more time to those who want to register.

According to the IEC spokesman, DieudonnÚ Mirimo, the registration offices have experienced such an influx of voters lately that the officers involved in the task have become overwhelmed. The registration which began on June 7, 2009 in Kinshasa was due to end on Wednesday, August 5, 2009.

The IEC has also postponed registration in the provinces due to technical problems.

The registration only applies to those voters who will have reached age 18 on the eve of the upcoming local elections and the general elections of 2011, those who have lost their voting cards, those who have changed their addresses, and those with errors on their old voting cards.
