The Social Movement (MS), a political formation of the opposition in the Democratic Republic of Congo, says it is in line with the logic of the republican opposition in order to help, according to it, to build a true rule of law in the country.
In a press release issued on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 and signed by its National Executive Secretary Dieudonné Bolengetenge, the MS claims to have been touched by Head of State Felix Tshisekedi’s speech to it last Monday in Bukavu, but also by his public commitments that express his clear commitment to improving democratic governance and the living conditions of the Congolese population.
The Social Movement encourages the Head of State for his fight in the search for peace and security for the populations of Eastern DRC, his willingness to strengthen the national opposition in its role as a counterweight to power, the fight against corruption and anti-values in all its forms, as well as the application of free education as enshrined in the country’s constitution.
However, this political organization says it expects clear indicators on commitments, including the appointment of the opposition spokesperson, the banning of poaching and duplication of political parties, its involvement in ensuring the effective representation of opposition deputies in the office of the National Assembly and in the control commissions, the urgent reform of the Constitutional Court and the INEC, as well as firm and swift measures to restore security in the east of the country.
Contrary to the rumours that have been circulating, the MS reaffirms its membership of the LAMUKA platform, as well as the political group Ensemble pour le changement de Moise Katumbi.
