The political actors and those of the civil society met in consultation from November 25 to 27 in Madingou, in the south of Congo, in order to calm the climate before the presidential election of 2021. They agreed, among other things, on the maintenance of the use of the single ballot and of the revision of the electoral lists. While these results seem to satisfy the government, the opposition thinks they have more or less been imposed.

  'You’ve got to have trust.' The strategy Joe Biden hopes will lead to agreement in a post-Trump era President-elect Biden hopes the reputation he has as a deal maker will help him push an agenda in Congress. But skepticism about that outcome is high.“John, are you saying air strikes would not help the people in Srebrenica right now? Is that what you're telling me?” Biden, then a Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said as he pressed McCain, the Arizona Republican who died in 2018.

While trying to speculate the market reaction to a Trump reelection or Biden victory may not be worthwhile, historical trends about stock market performance before, during, and after presidential elections can help set expectations for wary investors.

Minister Mboulou notably underlined that it is the duty of politicians to build, now and for the future, a peaceful Republic.

"You are destroying what we have been able to do together"

The results of Madingou's consultation do not seem to satisfy the opposition. Its leader Pascal Tsaty Mabiala got a little carried away while commenting on the proceedings in plenary shortly before the publication of the final communiqué. For him, the conclusions were drawn up from Brazzaville by the organizers of the consultation. "You are destroying what we have been able to do together", he stormed.

In Madingou, it was also agreed to put in place a mechanism to avoid duplication between the special lists of law enforcement officers and the general electoral lists.
