Congolese Elections

The United States welcomes the announcement of presidential election results in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. These elections are an important milestone toward the successful completion of Congo's transition to democracy, and the opening of a new era for the Congolese people.

We congratulate President Kabila on his victory and call on all parties to uphold the democratic process and to observe established commitments. We look forward to working with the Congolese government, national parliament, provincial governments, opposition and civic leaders to help them forge a successful democracy. The United States will stand by the Congolese people as they secure peace, prosperity and democracy for the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
