Congo President

The Republic of Congo’s ruling party, Congolese Labour Party, PCT has endorsed President Denis Sassou N’Guesso as its candidate in the March 20 presidential elections.

The party, in a statement, said the decision was reached at the end of its fourth meeting that took place between January 24 and 25.

“The party’s Central Committee unanimously supported this choice and asked President Sassou N’Guesso to contest, and the committee reassured him of its support,” it added.

PCT secretary general, Pierre Ngollo said the party had made the right choice by endorsing Sassou N’Guesso, an experienced man who brought peace to the country and works hard for its development.

Ngollo urged PCT supporters to financially support campaigns for the re-election of the incumbent president.

Mr N’Guesso has not yet declared his decision on whether he will contest or not, although the new Constitution that was promulgated in November last year allows him to run for another term.
