Chad: Government Launches Institutional Reform Forum

Some 800 delegates on March 19, 2018 began meeting in the Chadian capital, N’Djamena to discuss reform of the country’s institutions, Radio France International reported. Most opposition political parties are boycotting the forum. The gathering, a 2016 campaign promise of President Idriss Déby, will for a week examine the proposed new administrative set-up for Chad, institutions and tenure for the Head of State, parliamentarians and senators. In line with the proposed changes, the Economic and Social Council and the Office of the Public Protector are expected to cease to exist. At the end of the sitting, a draft constitution is to be presented to voters for approval.
