Al-Otaibi welcomed registration of candidates for presidential and legislative elections, and DRC’s President Joseph Kabila’s respect of constitution and December 2016 political agreement. He reiterated commitment to UNSC’s press release which called all political parties in DRC as well as institutions responsible for organizing elections to assure success of voting and thus a peaceful power transition.
The release also called on all parties to participate in elections, build confidence among each other and respect basic rights, he said.
Al-Otaibi urged the DRC government to ask the UN mission to provide logistical and technical support to bring about success to the voting process.
Al-Otaibi called on importance of respecting the sovereignty, independence and unity of DRC. “Undoubtedly the security and political stability will impact stability of the region and neighboring countries,” he said.
