Summary:
For forty-five years the Congo waited for free elections. But before the election, several important items had to be in place, namely, an electoral register and voters' cards. And these things presented huge problems in a country with limited infrastructure and security. With the help of the United Nations, the European Union and advisors from Belgium it has been accomplished. A Belgian firm shipped the computers, printers, photographic equipment, and its experts were on call. Delivering the necessary electronic kits for printing the voters' cards to a safe holding area was also a tremendous problem. The trucks were in disrepair and their low-paid drivers did not have enough food, drink, or sleep. But with the dream of democracy near at hand, and good spirits, the people pulled together.
