Police shooting looms over Emanuel in confirmation battle

  Police shooting looms over Emanuel in confirmation battle WASHINGTON (AP) — The fatal police shooting of a Black teen in Chicago seven years ago is looming large over the city’s former mayor, Rahm Emanuel, as he looks to win confirmation as President Joe Biden’s ambassador to Japan.

For President Felix Tshisekedi, it is a fight to carry out together with respect for human rights.

"Since doctrines diverge between, on the one hand, the confessions which defend the thesis of total bid and power, and on the other hand, those who advocate for the prophetic mission of the Church, decide the break from the six religious confessions, signatories of the minutes of appointment of the President of The Independent National Electoral Commission and a Plenary Member, on behalf of the platform of religious denominations that we describe, and propose the redefinition of the values ​​of the operating mode of the platform, as well as the revision of its charter.
