  • Emmanuel Shadary named presidential candidate of DR Congo's ruling coalition

"The conclusion of consultations under President Joseph Kabila Kabange, the moral authority of the Common Front for Congo, has resulted in a name, the rare bird who will represent our political family in the presidential election", government spokesman Lambert Mende told reporters in the capital, Kinshasa, on Wednesday.

And a former leading presidential contender Moise Katumbi, has been blocked from entering Congo in recent days to file his candidacy.

Kin-Kiey - a vocal Kabila supporter - is running as an independent, local media said. "Today, he has kept his promise", Ramazani said.

The 57-year-old added that the country needed reconstruction and social services, "that's what we are going to do", adding that "we are open to the whole world".

Demonstrations over the delay turned deadly, with Pope Francis and others appealing for calm after police in January used tear gas to disperse ambassadors and others at a mass at Kinshasa's Catholic cathedral to honor protesters killed.

The selection of Ramazani is, however, a defiant move by Kabila. He is under European Union sanctions for alleged human rights abuses, including deadly crackdowns by security forces on protesters.

Kabila took office in 2001 after the death of his father President Laurent-Desire Kabila. He will be eligible to run again in 2023.

Kabila was elected in two previous elections and adversaries claim that he himself was the main obstacle to timely polls as he was reluctant to give up power.

By end of day yesterday, President Kabila announced through his spokesperson that he would not contest the December elections.

"What matters for the moment is that the constitution, whether willingly or not, has been respected", said Senator Jacques Ndjoli of the opposition Movement for the Liberation of the Congo (MLC) party.

KINSHASA, Congo - Congo's president is not running again in December's long-delayed elections, easing concerns by the opposition and worldwide community that he would try to stay in office and positioning one of Africa's most turbulent nations for what could be its first peaceful, democratic transfer of power.

Ramazani, a former governor of the eastern province of Maniema, served as interior minister from late 2016 until this February, when he was named permanent secretary of the PPRD.

A church-backed group called the Lay Co-ordination Committee (CLC) and a pro-democracy group, Lucha, had called for protests across the country if President Kabila said he would seek a third mandate.

The announcement came just hours before the deadline for lodging applications for the December 23 election.

By the close of registration on Wednesday evening, more than two dozen candidates had filed their candidacies.

The definitive list of candidates is set to be announced on September 19 after each name is validated by CENI.
