Officially announced for November 28, 2011, the countdown for elections and its related stress are already underway in the DRC. The recent experience of the Ivory Coast and the ongoing accusations against how the Kabila government is managing the electoral process, warn of the impact of elections on a still fragile DRC. Although elections are not likely to change anything for the Congolese people, they put the DRC’s peace process on a tightrope walk and with that, they also expose the government’s and the international community’s undone housework.
