Congo MP candidates petition court to reclaim ‘mandate’ [The Morning Call]


By Jerry Bambi

Thirty-one candidates from the last legislative elections in the Democratic Republic of Congo DRC have appeared in court in what they call a fight to reclaim their mandate. It comes after the MP’s election win was since invalidated by the judgement of a special high court in the large central African country.

The decision the court said it had taken in order to allow for a cross check of material errors in the December 30 election.
