As the country is at a historic turning point in its destiny, supreme solutions will have to emerge from the ground where it is expected to review the way in which the state continues to organise itself.
The regular meetings between President Félix Antoine Tshisekedi and his predecessor Joseph Kabila is a great step forward for democracy in the DRC, said Monday the President of the National Assembly, Jeanine Mabunda in an interview on an international radio.
Indeed, to a question of whether the former President of the Republic Joseph Kabila Kabange would not hinder the action of the President of the Republic Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo, the president of the lower house of the Congolese Parliament said ” a little bit surprised because they speak fluently enough.
And for us, the Congolese, compared to the political history in confrontation that we have known, it is a big step forward. We could not hope that. And to continue: “It is for the first time that we make a transition where finally, a former President notes the election result that gives the voice to an old opposition, in a peaceful context”.
Asked if the time put by the Democratic Republic of Congo without a prime minister did not worry him, Jeanine Mabunda said that discussions are under way and that we will soon land, stressing that the DRC does not is not an exception in this regard.
“We saw that in other countries, whether Finland, Austria or Belgium took 580 days to find a prime minister,” she said before announcing that “we will go much faster than the 580 Belgian days “.
“An obligation to have the Congo in all its diversity”. Moreover, to the question of whether the majority will make a gesture in favour of the opposition that is not yet present in the National Assembly, the president of the lower house reassured: “There is certainly an interest, an obligation to have the Congo in all its diversity “.
Discussions are under way with the various opposition leaders on this issue, she said, explaining that the opposition is waiting for a counter-proposal from the majority that would go in the direction of perhaps compensating for what they consider that they have not obtained at the level of the office of the National Assembly.
She said that the National Assembly is currently in the process of forming parliamentary groups, and will be working committees.
“And it is perhaps within these different bodies that we can continue this dialogue to make everyone comfortable,” she believes. For Jeanine Mabunda who does not want to speak about an opposition that still has many faces, “it is the Congolese citizens who will judge.
What we want is a constructive opposition, it is a democratic opposition, that all the sensibilities of the majority and of the opposition can express themselves, but with a certain sense of responsibility. Congolese are tired of politics “.June 4, 2019 at 2:38 pm #211168

Concerned since the proclamation of the provisional results by the CENI giving for non-elected its number, the base of the FCD, in all Mont-Amba, jumped of joy, after the final proclamation of the legislative polls, on July 2 and 3, by the high Court.
From Limete, going to Ngaba, crossing Matete and Kinsenso, to reach Lemba, that is to say, in all the communes of Mont-Amba, motorized caravans were abruptly organized to celebrate this rehabilitation of Pierre Kangudia, to the detriment of Jean Goubald Kalala. After improvised festivities in his residence the night he was declared elected by the Constitutional Court, Pierre Kangundia went down on the ground, in order to commune with his electorate, while admitting his overflowing desire to circulate in all five communes of Mont -Amba, in the sense of showing his gratitude to his base. The base had not hesitated to walk from Mont-Amba to the seat of the High Court, to denounce superfluous maneuvers and roughness, while this jurisdiction had embarked on the examination for rectification of material errors, after the invalidation of an armada of national MPs of the Lamuka coalition.

Also, they believe, hard like iron, that the standard-bearer of the FCD will not fail to initiate appropriate laws to guarantee the strict application of the budget forecasts.
