Rumors of negotiations between Bemba's MLC, Tshisekedi's UDPS and other groups and political parties born in the diaspora are being confirmed and point to a shift in the struggle for the [D.R. of]Congo's survival. The nationalistic character of this emerging coalition is reinforced by another very influential factor here in the Congo: the involvement of the Congo's Catholic Church.” This coalition, the post suggests, would serve as an opposition to ruling party PPRD.
