IOL: Partial DRC election results to be released: "Congolese authorities have been persuaded by envoys from international countries, with South Africa playing a leading role, to start releasing interim results in the DRC elections from Tuesday.So there you have it. By tomorrow, we should be able to have a more accurate view of what the real results are. And hopefully this will decrease the high level of tensions in the country.
In the tense capital, 'the climate was being poisoned' by claims from political parties and candidates and the radio and TV stations they owned, SA's ambassador in Kinshasa, Sisa Ngombane, said on Sunday.
'We told the CEI (the DRC's electoral commission) it would be impossible not to say anything on the results.'
He and other envoys had a meeting with the CEI and editors from local media to discuss the release of interim results, as the process threatened to break down due to chaos at so-called compilation centres."
Congo kino liwa! Over and out!
