Expected for seven months, the first government of Felix Tshisekedi could be set up in the coming days in Kinshasa. The investiture of the new ministerial team is part of the agenda of a special session of the National Assembly convened at the request of the Congolese President from Monday, August 19 in the afternoon.
The publication of the government team should intervene in the next few days, if not the next few hours. A tweet posted at the end of last week by the services of the Prime Minister, lets predict. Sylvestre Ilunga Ilunkamba hopes to give the head of state, at the beginning of this week, " a version on which he will have agreed with each of the two platforms " of the coalition.
According to these same services, the first copies filed had been rejected on the grounds that the work was incomplete. According to a source close to the negotiators who requested anonymity, the criteria of gender and representativeness of youth had not been observed . The coordinators of the FCC and Cach had to return on weekends their corrected copies to allow the President of the Republic to quickly appoint the government, and the National Assembly to invest the team.
This extraordinary session could be disrupted, particularly with regard to the validation of the mandates of some thirty deputies drafted by the Constitutional Court. Next to them are so many others who also claim to be MPs. Both groups have judgments of the Constitutional Court.
