On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, political parties of the opposition, dissatisfied with the conduct of the national dialogue convened by the Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute, chose to sulk this meeting.
Some opposition parties, including the Alliance of Progressive Forces, have blasted the way in which the dialogue is organized and the themes chosen. They find that this is not an exchange but a monologue of the party in power especially since the final decisions are already taken.
Alice Sadio, President of the Alliance of Progressive Forces, says her party has made proposals in preliminary consultations but these have not been taken into account. In addition, other opposition figures such as Akere Muna, presidential candidate of 2018 as well as Celestin Bedzigui and Jacque Ekindi left the session believing that the dialogue is a staging because everything is already play.
