South Africa called for calm on Monday ahead of the announcement of the presidential election results in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The results would be announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, and South Africa warned that “any other body of civil society should refrain from announcing  any results of the  elections”, because it “may undermine peace and stability in the DRC, as well as multilateral processes”.

“We urge all leaders from different sectors of society to be responsible and wait for the elections results from CENI”.

By its statement, South Africa has joined the SADC, the AU and many other international organizations awaiting the elections results in DRC to call for calm.
