Trump envoy tells DR Congo elections must be held in 2018

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, told the Democratic Republic of Congo to hold elections next year, rather than delay them until 2019, if it wanted to count on American backing.

“Elections must be held in 2018, (otherwise) the DRC should not count on the support of the United States and the international community,” Haley said, after meeting Corneille Nangaa, head of DRC’s National Electoral Commission.
