DRC President, Joseph Kabila.

Democratic Republic of Congo’s Presidential Election is in December but President Joseph Kabila will not be standing, a spokesman said on Wednesday, announcing that former interior minister Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary would be the ruling coalition’s candidate.

The announcement by spokesman Lambert Mende at a news conference puts an end to years of speculation about whether Kabila would defy term limits to run for a third term.

Joseph Kabila succeeded his father, Desirée Kabila who was killed in a failed bid to unseat him last decade. His father led the struggle to remove one time richest President in Africa, Mobutu Sese Seko.
