CONFUSION HITS THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY: Vital Kamerhe Booed On Return To National Assembly

Division has hit the newly elected UDPS party government and its allies with the first plenary of the inaugural session of the fourth legislature of the Third Republic at the National Assembly turning out to be eventful last Monday.

Union for the Congolese Nation (UNC) leader and President Fèlix Tshisekedi’s ally Vital Kamerhe was at the center of controversy on Monday as he was welcomed with jeers and boos by UDPS party national deputies in the congress hall at the National Assembly.

Kamerhe, a major players in the re-election of President Tshisekedi, has fallen out of favor with activists of the presidential party UDPS for having formed another coalition dubbed the Pact for a Congo Found (PCR) with Julien Paluku, Tony Kanku and Jean-Lucien Bussa.

The deputy prime minister for economics is being castigated for his alleged ambitions to become the DR Congo’s overall prime minister or president of the National Assembly, a position he previously held from December 2006 to March 2009.

Kamerhe is said to have been in agreement with Tshisekedi to be appointed as prime minister and later as vice-president after the amendment of the constitution in exchange of his support prior to the elections.

However, Kamerhe denies having any of such ambitions and reaffirms his committment to simply helping the Head of State succeed in his second term.
