The National Episcopal Conference of Congo (Cenco) published Thursday, January 12, the results of its Extraordinary General Assembly devoted to the conduct of presidential and legislative elections of 28 November. It was during a Mass, which many lay Catholics attended the Cathedral of Notre Dame in the Congo.

To the Catholic bishops, the election results have disappointed the Congolese, as marked by “cheating proven and probably planned.”


In his message read by Father Leonard Santedi, Cenco’s request to the Independent National Electoral Commission (Ceni) “have the courage and honesty to acknowledge the serious flaws that call into question the credibility of the results of the polls.”

According to the Election Observation Mission of Cenco, “the vote took place in many places in a chaotic environment.”

For the Cenco, “what is happening now in the compilation of the results of legislation is unacceptable.” Catholic bishops say they favor the voice of dialogue to peacefully resolve electoral disputes in progress.
