Democratic Republic of Congo opposition leaders called for a temporary suspension of street protests over proposed changes to an electoral code that critics say may extend President Joseph Kabila’s 14-year rule.
Protesters are seeking to prevent the senate from voting on the new electoral law, which includes requiring the country to hold its first census in about three decades before the next national elections. Opposition parties say that may delay the vote and leave Kabila in power.
