[Politics] After Joseph Kabila succeeded the president, with the vigorous promotion of the international community, the peace process was re-launched and significant progress was made. Foreign troops were withdrawn one after another. The Ganggang Group’s overall deployment has progressed smoothly. In April 2003, the government and domestic factions reached an agreement on the issue of transitional power distribution, signed the “Comprehensive Inclusive Agreement” and the “Transitional Constitution”, and formed the transitional government in June. Kabila served as the transitional president in 2005. In December, the referendum was just adopted and the New Constitution was passed. In July and October 2006, just after the presidential election, Kabila was elected. In April 2009, Boshav, the general secretary of the ruling party for reconstruction and the Democratic People’s Party, was elected as the speaker.

In January 2015, the National Assembly reviewed and approved amendments to the electoral law that included provisions for pre-census censuses. The opposition accused the government of attempting to extend Kabila’s ruling period and create conditions for its constitutional re-election. It organized demonstrations in the capital Kinshasa and evolved into mass riots. The National Assembly subsequently withdrew the relevant dispute clause and the riots subsided. In September 2016, the national political dialogue was just opened, and the radical opposition boycott led by Etienne Tshisekedi boycotted the dialogue. In October, the presidential majority, the moderate opposition, and the civil society reached an agreement and decided to postpone the election until April 2018. On December 19th, the National Solidarity Government, which was formed by the National Assembly member Badi Benga as Prime Minister, was formed. Since then, under the mediation of the National Bishops Conference, the radical opposition and the presidential majority have started a dialogue.

In November, the Independent Electoral Commission announced the timetable for the general election. It is scheduled to hold the “three-in-one” elections of the President, the National Assembly and the Provincial Assembly in December 2018. From December 2017 to March 2018, the “Secular Coordination Committee” supported by the Catholic Church organized large-scale demonstrations across the country, demanding that Kabila effectively implement the “National Inclusive Political Solution” and publicly promise not to participate. In this election, the police clashed with the protesters and caused casualties. In September 2018, the Independent Electoral Commission announced the final list of presidential candidates, and Kabila no longer participated in the election. On December 30, 2018, the Congo (DRC) held a general election. More than 46 million voters were registered in this election. There were 75,000 polling stations across the country, and a total of 21 candidates were elected. The voting process was generally smooth and no serious violent conflicts occurred. In January 2019, Felix Antoine Zisekdi, the former leader of the opposition Democratic and Progressive Alliance and the son of Etienne Zisekdi, was elected and inaugurated.

In May, the Rwandan rebels (FDLR), the Rwandan anti-government armed forces in Gangdong, surrendered, but did not complete the disarming within a limited time.
