DRC: Multiple Parties Named UDPS

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, D.R. of Congo, Elections, Politics

Le Blog du Congolais analyzes [1](FR) Minister of Interior Theophile Mbemba's decision on April 1 to yield to one of UDPS’ long running demands by declaring that only one UDPS, Etienne Tshisekedi's, could run for office under that name during upcoming elections. But Blogger Tony Katombe sees no more than a cosmetic eleventh hour move in this decision because it only left UDPS 24 hours to register its candidacy, a process that took others 14 days.
