KINSHASA, APR 26 (AP/UNB) - Congo's Supreme Court of Justice has invalidated 28 ministers months after a vote that was considered fraudulent and chaotic.
The court said Thursday it invalidated these ministers after it found numerous irregularities and fraud after two months of election disputes. The ministers had been declared elected by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The court also said it has validated 28 other ministers who must replace the others.
Congo's recent election was only the second since the country's disastrous civil war, and it's the first to be organized entirely by the country itself rather than by the United Nations.
