Faced with the persistent blockage at the CENCO. DRC: Militant Youth offers a way out of the crisis!
Although it has been marginalized by the political actors R.D. Congolais, the Congolese youth is full of good heads made in the civil society. During a workshop organized on December 17, 2016, Youth of the Civil Society, anxious to contribute to the exit from the crisis in the DRC, at the Maison des Elections, reflected under three (3) thematic commissions, Namely: the thematic Election, thematic Descrition and thematic Good governance. At the end of this workshop, under the moderation of Richie Lontulungu, a litany of recommendations were formulated to finally push the political actors into discussions at the interdiocesan center, to privilege the national interest and cultivate peace.
Given the patriotic will to participate actively in the process of reconstruction, reconciliation and development of the DRC, Youth Militant has addressed all the actors who have a parcel of power in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in order to ” Attach to civic and moral values that would help the country break the deadlock. The National Episcopal Conference of Congo (CENCO) can, even if it has its plan B, use these recommendations of Congolese youth who have given themselves the task of reflecting for peace and the calm electoral process in the DRC.
Regarding the “election theme”, in spite of the current electoral process, Youth Militant recommends that the CENI set up an electoral body that inspires confidence in all stakeholders; To make good use of the funds placed at its disposal; Fund and intensify civic and electoral education activities; To sensitize and train political parties on the electoral system in the DRC; To set up a consensual and realistic electoral calendar.
On this, it asked the government to finance and respect the disbursement plan signed with the CENI and secure the electoral process in an impartial way.
In the National Assembly it is recommended to pass the law on the distribution of seats and to enforce all laws relating to the organization of elections.
As measures of political decrimination, Youth Militant recommends that elective institutions remain in place until the establishment of a new legislature; The release of all political prisoners and detainees of opinion by presidential pardon; An amnesty for all political exiles.
During the transitional period, it is stressed that the Constitution of the Republic can not be amended, either by referendum or by any form whatsoever. Through a consensual voice, share power equitably at all levels: Transitional Government, Public Enterprises,
Provincial governments (at the level of decentralized territorial entities).
The Militant Youth also advocates for effective representation of young people and women activists in civil society in all decision-making bodies. That the police, she says, do not use real bullets in the framing of the demonstrators. In case of overflow, the police are called upon to make use of peaceful and modern methods. Thus, Youth Militant, aware of the irrefutable role of Youth in the various mutations and socio-political stakes, recommends the lifting of the measure banning recruitment and promotion of agents in public institutions.
In terms of governance, Youth Militancy requires the Prime Minister who will manage the transition to compose his government in the following manner: 35% of the members of the Opposition; 35% of the Presidential Majority and, finally, 30% of the civil society.
At the level of decentralized institutions, Militant Youth demands that the quota be in line with the government.
Contrary to those who advocate the restructuring of the CENI, the Youth of the Civil Society opposes this maneuver to delay the electoral process in progress.
