DRC: Louis Michel's Performance as a Mediator

According to Ndjoli Bodjenga at Le Blog du Congolais (Fr) European Commissary Louis Michel has performed poorly as a mediator during the transition to elections in the DRC: “An impartial political mediator would not overtly confront one of the principal actors of the conflict to be solved; he would not sue the most popular political party when he is supposed to facilitate internal dialogue; he would not so overtly support a military candidate that might restore authoritarianism; he would have more persistent talks with more promising candidates recognized for their competence and experience (Lunda, Kamanda, Mukamba, etc.) “
