The election commission just published the latest registration figures. Bas Congo and Maniema, where registration has been completed with 1,4 million and 874,000 respectively, are not on this list.
Note that two Congolese human rights groups – including Asadho, one of the oldest in the country – came out today in support of a postponement of elections, arguing that it will be impossible to hold the polls by November 28th and a mad rush to do just that might end up in botched elections. This comes after Crisis Group made a similar argument a month ago. The Congolese groups say that we might need anywhere between one and two years more to hold decent polls.
