République Démocratique du Congo: Vers un blocage total des négociations ?

7th February 2017 Africa, Analysis, Other Solutions

The sudden death of Etienne Tshisekedi, President Kabila’s main rival and president of the Rassemblement (an opposition coalition), will have a significant impact on Congo’s political landscape. Other important developments, such as the ongoing impasse in the direct negotiations on the implementation of the 31st of December 2016 political agreement, fears of a new rebel movement in the eastern parts of the country since the recent incursion of former M23 rebels as well as apparent discords within the Rassemblement, could tip the balance in favor of President Kabila’s camp.

The present document is written in French and offers an analysis of the afore-mentioned factors and their impact on the ongoing electoral crisis in the DRC.
