A joint government program was found at Bwela Lodge in Kongo Central between the two branches of the governing coalition: the Common Front for Congo (FCC) and the Cape for Change (CACH), said François Muamba Tshishimbi , one of the main negotiators in the talks for the formation of the new government.
In this regard, he spoke on Sunday 9 June on an international media relayed by 7sur7.cd indicating that on Sunday 9 June President Felix Tshisekedi and Honorary President Joseph Kabila gave clear instructions on the basic principles of government formation.
However, he said, the government will not be put in place until June 15, the end of the ordinary session of parliament, the only institution entitled to invest the national executive. He indicated that a special session of the National Assembly will be convened.
FCC announces government within a week
The assurances of the chief negotiator of the Cape for Change were reinforced by the intervention of the national deputy François Nzekuye, negotiator on behalf of the Common Front for Congo (FCC) Tuesday, June 11th. It was during the program “Appel sur l’actualité” of Radio France Internationale (RFI) quoted by actualité.cd, affirmed that the establishment of the Government Ilunga Ilunkamba could intervene as of next week. And to add that the meeting between Felix Tshisekedi and Joseph Kabila, Sunday, June 9, has allowed the negotiations to accelerate between their respective platforms. These are in neutral.
“The CACH really wanted to hurt our relationship. Fortunately, the Head of State Félix-Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo and Joseph Kabila met last Sunday to mark the path. We have clear instructions to move the process forward and I think that within a week we will have a new government, “he said.
And to emphasize: “We made the choice of the coalition with the aim of avoiding a crisis between institutions. The DRC is not mature enough to live a cohabitation as is done in many European countries. It is therefore important that we look in the same direction for the happiness of all Congolese people.
It should be noted that Prime Minister Ilunga Ilunkamba does not participate in these negotiations between FCC and CACH around the sharing of ministerial posts.
In spite of everything, the two political groups agree that they maintain the negotiations even if they have been disturbed by the mini-crisis caused by the examination and criticism, considered discourteous, of presidential appointment of agents in two public companies: Gécamines and SNCC.
