The spokesman for the opposition delegation Jean Lucien said the suspension of their participation in the dialogue was aimed at pushing the country’s National Independent Electoral Commission to prioritize organization of the presidential elections.
“For us, we want the presidential elections coupled with legislative or provincial elections, but the priority should be on presidential elections,” said Lucien early this week.
He revealed that the ruling party had wanted local and municipal elections prioritized yet it was impossible to hold these elections which may keep the incumbent president in office beyond the end of his term for over 3 to 5 years.
“The opposition believes that the election that can disrupt our country’s institutional order is the presidential election; it should be this election that kicks off the electoral cycle,” the opposition forum’s co-moderator Vital Kamerhe added. Enditem
