The Sacred Union of the Nation (SUN), the ruling coalition in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), has won governorship elections in 11 of the 14 provinces, according to results published by the state-run television.
In the elections held last Friday, the SUN made a clean sweep, according to the country’s national broadcast media, Congolese National Radio and Television (RTNC).
Former President Joseph Kabila’s Common Front for Congo (FCC) won one seat – Maniema in the eastern region. Three of the newly elected officials are women.
The second round of elections is expected to take place early next week in the Kongo Central and Tshopo provinces to decide between the two candidates, announced the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI).
