Abstract:This article is a critical assessment of the role played by the Heads of religious denominations in the 2011 electoral process in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It highlights the commitments made by these social leaders to contribute to a transparent electoral process, free and credible and non-compliance with these commitments by some of these leaders owing to their allegiance to the political power. The article calls for the dissolution of this dialogue platform between the Congolese religious leaders since it failed to meet their core objectives, and calls each religious community take on its own responsibilities before God, the nation and also before its congregation in complete independence.
