Chadian national dialogue postponed to February 15

Contrary to all expectations, the president of the Transitional Military Council, General Mahamat Idriss Deby, has announced that the inclusive national dialogue in Chad will take place on February 15.
However, the Council of Ministers had adopted a roadmap that called for the political dialogue to be held between November and December 2021.
The dialogue, which is supposed to be open-ended, is expected to lead to the drafting of a new constitution, which will then be submitted to all Chadians in a referendum. Free, transparent and democratic general elections should also follow.
At the headquarters of the coordination of citizen actions Wakit Tama, they demand the modification of the transition charter before the organization of this political consultation.
Former opposition leader Saleh Kebzabo, now vice-chairman of the organizing committee for the inclusive national dialogue, is calling for restraint on the part of his former companions.
The February 15 date set for the start of this political mass is conditional on the holding of a pre-dialogue between the government and political-military forces, scheduled for mid-January in Doha, Qatar.
