Convention of the Republicans
Political grouping member of the “RASSEMBLEMENT”
Unity in Transparency and Reciprocal Loyalty
POLITICAL DECLARATION OF THE CONVENTION OF THE REPUBLICANS
FOLLOWING THE DECLARATION OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE CENI MONSIEUR CORNEILLE NANGAA
Meeting in ordinary session this Friday, July 14, 2017, the College of Presidents of the Political Parties took the following position:
In his capacity as President of the CENI, an institution supporting democracy, Mr Corneille NANGAA has no power to postpone elections that are dangerously yielding to the vagaries of power and in violation of the New Year’s Eve Agreement.
Such an oblique statement, moreover, provocative, engages only its author because our people is aware of the disastrous situation that it crosses and will not fail to take charge in due course.
The RC insists on the strict observance of the deadline agreed in the CENCO Agreement and denounces all these biased declarations and invites the CENI to regroup in order to respond to the expectation of the Congolese people who wish to exercise fully and unhindered any of its Constitutional and democratic right to freely choose its representatives for peaceful alternation.
