The congolese Parliament opens this Tuesday September 15, its second ordinary session of the year 2020. FORUM DES AS notes that on the national level, the aforementioned session opens in a somewhat particular political environment. A context primarily marked by sensitive questions. To do not say questions which annoy
It is mainly about the electoral reforms, the resumption of the debates around three private bills of FCC deputies, Aubin Minaku and Garry Sakata, in connection with the reform of justice.
Be added on these the first two subjects, the question related to the succession at the head of the CENI. Finally comes the business of the presidential orders of last 17 July bearing appointment of high-ranking magistrates.
Already, many observers fear that these questions can eclipse the object of the session which is primarily budgetary.
L’AVENIR reports that during the 48th meeting the Council of Ministers, the president of the Republic called the members of the central Government to the respect and the consideration of the Governors of provinces and to work with them in harmony and the respect of the texts in force.
Indeed, for some time, the complaints of the Governors of provinces are addressed to the Head of State to deplore the attitude of certain members of the central Government who go in their decentralized entities, in particular in mining zones, without warning their arrival or, rather, informing them of their presence only once arrived on the ground.
Some got advantage from these voyages to discuss the taxes and royalties due to the provinces by the aforementioned companies, without the knowledge of the provincial authorities. This kind of behavior does not support the success of the policy of decentralization and contributes to the weakening of the provincial authority.
LE PHARE accuses the FCC to set up as a gendarme of the territorial. Indeed, in an official statement published on September 7, 2020, FCC calls into question the discretionary power of the VPM of the Interior as regards installation of the organizers of "large" like "the small territorial", LE PHARE notes.
Setting up as a gendarme of territorial,‘‘FCC fait privé’’ supports that the changes operated in 2018 under Regime should remain in the state. In other words, before informing anyone, Gilbert Kankonde should consult the "Kabilistes" and obtain their downstream.
LE PHARE wonders whether the FCC is not transforming into parallel government.
CONGO NOUVEAU sees in the proposal of the FCC carried by Ngoy Kassanji, by which this last wishes the organization of presidential with the second degree, a passage in force of Joseph Kabila to return to the power.
