    No Third Term for DRC President Joseph Kabila

    Democratic Republic of Congo's President Joseph Kabila will not be seeking a third term in December's election, BBC Africa reports.

    This was revealed by his spokesperson. The revelation was followed by the nomination of former interior minister Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary to be the candidate of the governing coalition

    It would be recalled that Mr Kabila's second term ended in 2016, but elections were delayed, giving room for the speculation that he would run again.

    Eight other candidates have registered to run ahead of Wednesday's deadline, the news site understands.

    Mr Shadary will slug it out with former Vice-President Jean Pierre Bemba, who returned to DR Congo last week after 11 years and being acquitted of war crimes at the International Criminal Court.
