Abstract:This article focuses on the exercise of the right to vote by persons provisionally deprived of their liberty under congolese law. these persons are presumed innocent and must therefore benefit from all the legal and regulatory measures for the protection of human rights in force in the drc. by this article, it is noted that there are several legal instruments and measures for the protection of human rights in pre-trial detention in force in the drc. nonetheless, the experience of the 2006, 2011 and 2018 elections shows that the current state of affairs of the judiciary and the electoral management body (cei or ceni depending on the time ), it remains difficult for remand prisoners to enjoy their right to vote on the same basis as any congolese citizen who is not deprived of his civil and political rights.
