 DR Congo ruling coalition to name presidential candidate


KINSHASA 8 Aug (ANA) - The ruling coalition in the Democratic Republic of Congo is expected to name its presidential candidate in the coming hours.

President Joseph Kabila held talks to discuss the matter with party officials on Tuesday.

Mr Kabila, who should have left office two years ago, is constitutionally barred from another term, though he has not publicly said he won't stand again.

Presidential candidates must submit their applications to the electoral commission by late afternoon on Wednesday.

Eight hopefuls have already done so. They include the former vice-president and ex-warlord, Jean Pierre Bemba, who returned to the DR Congo last week after being acquitted of war crimes at the International Criminal Court.(ANA)
