The United Nations Security Council has postponed a key meeting where the Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC) recent election was to be discussed. The postponement was requested by South Africa.
EWN Africa Correspondent Jean-Jacques Cornish says South Africa requested a postponement because it wants to give the Congolese authorities time to announce the election.

Cornish reports that the Security Council was called by France in a closed-door session to tell Joseph Kabila to announce who won this election.
