DR Congo - Current Account

In the wake of longtime President Joseph Kabila’s announcement in August that he would not seek a third term, politicking among his hopeful successors has been ratcheting up. His party will put forward Emmanuel Shadary, a Kabila loyalist. Meanwhile, opposition parties are scrambling to secure their names on the ballot; one leading hopeful was barred from entering the country, while Jean-Pierre Bemba, who had planned to lead a six-party coalition against the incumbents, is awaiting a final verdict on his ineligibility to contest the vote. In the run-up to the long-delayed 23 December elections, economic activity has been firming up on the strength of the extractive sectors, which have been benefiting from a strong global economy.
