Congo President Kabila won't seek third term: DRC PM

MONTREAL, June 12 (Reuters) - Congo’s current President Joseph Kabila won’t seek a third mandate in the African country’s upcoming December elections because of constitutional term limits that prevent him from running again, Prime Minister Bruno Tshibala said on Tuesday.

“The elections are going to take place without the participation of President Kabila who will abide by the spirit and the letter of the constitution,” Tshibala said in an interview on the sidelines of the International Economic Forum of the Americas, Conference of Montreal.
