The adoption of the amended electoral bill is approved by several political parties and groups of political parties. Thus, in a press release signed by its vice-president, the Republican Action for Progress (ARP) asks the President of the transition to promulgate it and invites the Prime Minister to draw the conclusions from this political disavowal.
In a press release, a copy of which we have received, the ARP (Republican Action for Progress) welcomes the adoption of the new electoral law by CNT on Friday, June 17, 2022. On the grounds that despite the multiple calls for dialogue and inclusion, the Choguel government persevered in the cleavage and tried to push through its text. He presented to the transitional legislative body a non-consensual bill bearing the seeds of an acute political crisis, according to the press release. But the CNT was able to take into account the deep aspirations of most of the living forces of the Nation following healthy consultations.
Thus, mindful of republican and democratic values, the ARP group:
– Congratulates the members of the CNT for their courage which enabled the adoption of the electoral law by an overwhelming majority;
– Thanks the Law Commission for its attentive listening, which made it possible to make amendments to make the draft more inclusive and easier to digest;
– Requests the President of the Transition to promulgate this new consensual electoral law thus adopted following consultation with the major actors of the political class and civil society;
– Asks Prime Minister Choguel Kokalla Maïga to draw the conclusions from this political disavowal to avoid an institutional crisis for our country;
– Invites the President of the Transition to assume his responsibilities for the appointment of a non-divisive, non-partisan Prime Minister and an inclusive government.
Furthermore, the HRP invites the authorities of the Transition to adopt a consensual timetable, with a view to a rapid return to constitutional order and to reach an agreement with ECOWAS for the lifting of the sanctions affecting our country.
