A spokesman for the Democratic Republic of Congo has said President Joseph Kabila intends to respect the constitution and relinquish power after elections scheduled for December.

Speaking to VOA’s French to Africa language service, Lambert Mende said despite delays the government is finishing voter registration in remote areas of the country and is on track to hold elections according to the timetable set by the electoral commission.

He added Kabila does not intend to seek reelection, and will announce in July his choice of a candidate to compete in the December poll. According to the country’s constitution, the president can not seek a third consecutive term in office.

Joseph Kabila assumed the presidency in January 2001, days after the assassination of his father Laurent Kabila. He was elected president in his own right in 2006, and re-elected to a second term in 2011.

To him and his father's credit, Congo (one of the most politically unstable and fractious countries in Africa) has been stabilized somewhat.
If he completes this transition, Congo would never forget him.
His father was a master strategist, and he seems to have done well too.
Wishing him good luck in his final year as president.
