DRC's Kabila admits mistakes
London - Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila on Monday admitted mistakes had been made in elections in which he was re-elected but he rejected accusations that its credibility was in doubt.
"We wanted to organise perfect elections. Did we attain that perfection? Not 100%, I do agree, because it is a huge challenge," Kabila told a news conference in Kinshasa with journalists, including the BBC.
"But compared to the elections in 2006 these elections were better," he said.
Kabila said he rejected accusations from international monitors at the Carter Centre that his victory in the November 28 vote lacked credibility.
"Probably what we have to note is that the credibility of these elections cannot be put in doubt," he said.
