Congolese Opposition Party Changes Leadership Before Elections

The political party led by former Democratic Republic of Congo presidential candidate Jean-Pierre Bemba, who is under indictment at the International Criminal Court, changed its leadership ahead of elections this year.

Thomas Luhaka, a lawmaker, took over as secretary-general of the Movement for the Liberation of Congo, or MLC, from Francois Mwamba, who ran the party after Bemba’s transfer to The Hague, Luhaka said in a phone interview today.
