DRC: Legal Void after June 30

Transitional institutions stop being constitutional after June 30, 2006, writes (FR) blogger Mafelly-Makombo at Prince du Fleuve du Congo. He suggests that if elections should take place past that date, all of Congolese civil society including political parties and religious groups aided by the international community should be called on to negociate a new electoral calendar. Barring that kind of consensus the blogger suggests the Congolese people might “take to the streets.”
