Interview. Business leader and political opponent Abakar Manany (Abakar Manany) diagnosed Chad and outlined the prospects for getting the country out of trouble.
CTired of the five most authoritarian countries in the world economist Democracy Index) Along with Syria and North Korea, Chad has been chaired by Idriss Déby Itno for 30 years. On April 11 this year, the people will be called to participate in the presidential election, which will enable the current head of state, who was promoted to marshal in August last year, to receive his sixth term. Chad has oil and gold and other resources, but it is still one of the poorest countries in the world. Far from being in favor of praise, this configuration leads to transcend the country’s political and economic history and question the practices that led to this situation.
Chad: five things

AbakarAdoum Manany agreed to respond Africa Point. He said he boycotted Chad’s peaceful transition to democracy in order to boycott opinion polls. In this regard, he addressed with those militants who had been legally exiled for the president. He also worked hard for the establishment of a truth commission, with a view to shutting down Habré and Derby for decades, thus contributing to the establishment of VE Republic of Chad.

Africa point: Chad will hold a presidential election on April 11. What do you think of this election deadline?
Abakar Manany : You are talking about “election deadline”. Technically, this is one of them. But Chad must still live in a democratic system. However, before the Chadians participated in the vote, the winner had already been selected. As you said, this “deadline” is only a formal act for this man and his sinister group. They have ruled Chad for more than 30 years without faith or laws.The health crisis is a good excuse to ban the ban meeting Election of other candidates, and the current presidential marshal and the sixth presidential candidate held high in the pharaoh tour throughout the territory.So it seems to me to evoke hold up Elector. Moreover, those Chadians who disagree with Chadians, the President publicly insulted them, calling them “stray dogs.” Therefore, I asked our international partners: Can a dictatorship have an “election deadline”? I accept the term and know its historical significance. This weight smells like blood. However, blood has been bleeding in Chad for decades. In recent months, everyone has witnessed or suffered pain.
This arduous “election campaign” will only intensify the repressive logic of the regime, which destroys the lives of Chadians, overwhelms Chad, and no one in the world moves at all: censorship, intimidation, purchase of conscience, arrest, kidnapping , Poison gas, imprisonment, slaughter at home. Therefore, my eyes on April 11 were blank, melancholy, worried, and shocked. However, as long as necessary, this look does not exclude hope and action in preparation for a democratic transition. It won’t be tomorrow: On April 11 this year, Chad returned to hell.
Vincent Hugeux: “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely”
Isn’t this the best way to express your voice when organizing a poll?
On paper, from a comfortable Parisian armchair. In democracies, yes. In Chad, no. no longer. long time no see. The system will suppress divergent, discordant, and objectionable voices. How to vote when the result is known in advance? When fraud immediately disrupts election activities, how can you ensure that your voice will work and be considered? When the (pseudo) independent National Election Commission Ceni played a power game in the eyes of everyone? In this case, the best way to express your voice is definitely to spread your voice around the world, in the press, on social networks, and on the streets, so as to abstain. BoycottIn recent months, thousands of Chadians have bravely adopted endless voting or peaceful popular demonstrations at the expense of their safety and lives. But let us not be fooled. In any case, the regime filled with corpses in the cabinet was also filled with thousands of cunning tricks and a thousand perverts, winning the election at all costs. It’s like printing a card in the name of the deceased, or printing several cards for a voter and the same voter. How to pass political leaders of opponents and terrorists through the ministerial communiqué. Chadians have a responsibility to stay awake. This does not mean resignation. As the poet René Char said: “Awakeness is the wound closest to the sun. »Together with us, the clear bitterness burns your skin, the bitter harmattan burns your face, disgusting food It makes your stomach feel uncomfortable. It is precisely because of this disgust and sadness that I, like many Chadians, eagerly dream of the return of Chadian democracy. They believe in the subversive power of voting rights. Say it again: Participate and vote for these elections. Not the best way to get your voice expressed. Unless it merges with the regime.
