Tshisekedi shares cabinet with Kabila

Felix Tshisekedi and his predecessor Joseph Kabila reached an agreement to share the main security Presidentand economic cabinet posts between their two coalitions of Democratic Republic of Congo, the sources familiar with the negotiations said.

Kabila’s  Front Commun pour le Congo (FCC) and Tshisekedi’s Cap pour le changement (CATCH) both announced publicly that an agreement had been reached after six months of negotiations over the formation of a new government, but they did not immediately provide details.

The FCC had demanded most of the highest-profile ministries by virtue of the majority of ‘Kabilists’ in the parliament.

The protracted talks since Tshisekedi’s inauguration in January have been assessed as exercise of political maturity of both Tshisekedi and Kabila camps.
