Congo Court Says Kabila Must Continue Rule If Election Not Held

Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila will remain in office if the country fails to hold presidential elections that are scheduled for November, the Constitutional Court ruled.

“The court ruled that the head of state will stay in power until a new president is elected, even if the election of that president is delayed,” court spokesman Mumbombo Baudouin said in an interview Wednesday in the capital, Kinshasa.
