DR Congo: Bishops to President – ‘Give Priority to Well-Being of Population’

“Priority should be on the well-being of the population over all other political considerations. No political settlement can be above the requirement for the political power to do its best to ensure the well-being of the population,” the Bishops emphasize in the document.

They further say, “The respect for the Constitution, ensuring national security, the stability of the State and its Institutions, social peace and the rule of law and democracy” are other principles necessary to resolve the political stalemate in the Central African nation.

“With regard to the reforms that should consolidate the electoral system of our country, we insist above all on the depoliticization and strengthening of the independence of the members of the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) and recommend true consensual reforms of the electoral law,” the Bishops in DRC say.
