The extraordinary session of the National Assembly opened Monday, August 19 in Kinshasa. It was convened in the perspective of the inauguration of the first government of Felix Tshisekedi, whose revised composition was given to him by Prime Minister Sylvestre Ilunga Ilunkamba. But it will first validate the mandates of MPs.
Instead of 500 deputies expected, the hemicycle of the People's Palace received a higher number of people claiming to be members of the National Assembly. And each claimed to hold the decision of the Constitutional Court, although some of them do not appear on the final list sent to the office of the Assembly for the validation of mandates.
For the FCC MP Henri-Thomas Lokondo, the Constitutional Court discredited itself by organizing a special chamber for correcting material errors.
" The court has completely demonetized," denounced the parliamentarian. The Court has no value, sincerely. Through the decisions that were taken, the Court erred. Considering also the national and international opinion, if I were in their place, sincerely, I would disconnect, I would resign. "
So we should expect a lot of confusion when validating the mandates of MPs, those who will actually participate in debates on the investiture of the government . This team, according to the Prime Minister, can be ready in two or three days.
