Congo - Elections

On Thursday night September 7 2006, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) announced the full provisional results of the legislative elections of 30 July last. The PPRD party of president Kabila topped the polls with 111 seats, followed by the MLC party of vice-president Bemba with 64.

Mr. Kabila and Mr. Bemba are also the two remaining candidates for the second round of the presidential elections, scheduled for October 29 next. The PALU party of Antoine Gizenga, the candidate who came third in the first round of presidential elections, garnered 34 seats in the 500 seat DRC parliament.
 
Meanwhile the RCD party of Vice-President Azarias Ruberwa, a former candidate for the presidency, has 15 deputies in the new parliament.

Neither of the main political alliances- the AMP (Alliance for the Presidential Majority) of president Kabila, or RENACO (Regrouping of the Congolese Nationalists) of Vice president Bemba- reached the target of 251 deputies required to have a majority in Parliament.

Apart from the political parties, there are 63 independent deputies in the new parliament, which must install itself in 15 days, according to the Constitution and the electoral law. The number of women elected as deputies stands at 42, which represents less than 10% of the new parliament.

The senators will be elected by the provincial parliament, whose members, known as provincial deputies, will be elected at the same time of the second round of the presidential election, on October 29 next.
 
By law, the Supreme Court must announce the official legislative election results within two months. In addition, it is due to issue the official results of the first round of presidential elections in the coming days.
