Democratic republic of Congo President, Joseph Kabila, has named Bruno Tshibala as the new prime minister. Tshibala is a former member of the largest opposition party in the DRC.
According to Kabila, Tshibala's responsibility will be to organise the elections which were due to be held last year but were postponed.
Kabila refused to step down last year when his mandate expired, which sparked violent protests in the country leaving at least 40 people dead.
EWN Africa correspondent, Jean Jacques Cornish says it is not clear whether election will indeed be held.
