The political consultations launched three weeks ago by Félix Tshisekedi ended on Wednesday 25 November. If at the beginning, these consultations were very political, the last days have been marked by a greater openness, but always without the FCC of Joseph Kabila which is keen to respect the coalition agreement that the current president signed with his predecessor .
