largeMarshal President Idriss Déby Itno (Idriss Déby Itno) has been in power in Chad for 30 years and has not shared power. He is vying for a sixth term and will not be able to face six pale-faced candidates to escape him on Sunday. And sometimes even after violent dismissal, a very divided opposition may cast a shadow on him.
Convinced of this, it is enough to walk the streets of N’Djamena, where most residents seem to be uninterested in the “early cast” votes and painfully trying to balance the balance between the two cuts. Sometimes even watering non-stop for several days: the capital is literally plastered with posters of “IDI”, the glory of its parties and numerous satellite movements, and compete with its huge panels.
On the other hand, you have to drive for a long time to see some of the competitors’ posters.
For months, the regime has systematically banned “the fiercest opposition peaceful march”, which the fiercest opposition tries to organize every Saturday. The powerful riot police GMIP scattered militias at each beginning of the rally, which attracted no more than dozens of persuasive or reckless people.
Human Rights Watch on Thursday accused the security forces of “unrelenting crackdown.” At the beginning of March, the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres regretted the “use of violence by the opposition”.
But without any help, Marshal Derby’s campaign was mainly aimed at “peace and security.” He said that he was the architect of his country, and he was also in a suffering area in his home country: Chad, inland in Libya, Sudan, and China. The African Republics have made important contributions to the war against the jihadists in the Sahel by sending experienced troops to Mali and sometimes even to Nigeria.
According to the United Nations’ Human Development Index (HDI), in the capital of the world’s third least developed country, which is still an oil exporter since 2003, many children are begging in the streets, most of which are made of beaten and ground clay. Into. But neither the method of voting nor the 43 degrees indicated by mercury seem to interfere with the ballet of countless motorcycle taxis and street vendors on the main roads, which are literally covered with very fine sand.
In a small market in the slums of Gassi, in the Xixi bus at the flour mill that mills corn, most people don’t even know who the other candidates are. Or think that, consistent with the fierce opposition, these are merely “assertions” that the government is harmless, tolerant and even manipulated by the government.
Two months ago, the 15 opposition parties gathered in the League victory promoted the “single candidate” against Derby before being crushed. Finally, 16 suitors came forward and challenged the marshal.
The Supreme Court ruled that seven candidates were invalid. Then, three candidates, including “historic” rival Saleh Kebzabo (Saleh Kebzabo), withdrew their protest against violence and called for a boycott of the ballot, but the court kept their name on the ballot, so it showed 10 Candidates.
Therefore, only six people will challenge the President: Felix Nial Romandumga, Albert Pahimi Padak, and Theofili Yambombe Magitolum , Baltaza Aradum Jalma, Bryce Mbymon Gudmbaya, and the first female candidate in Chad’s history, Laidi Besemda.
“Except for Pahimi and Derby, I don’t know anything. If he wants to become a Derby, then whether he has the will to rebuild the country is fine, but if it is the same, then it is not worth the vote”, 34-year-old Abdul Abdel, in his small motorcycle spare parts shop in the Gassi market.
“I don’t know them, but I can’t vote for Derby. All the other candidates are in his camp,” added a young nurse in Gazi.
University political scientist Evariste Ngarlem Tolde (Evariste Ngarlem Tolde) concluded: “Mr. Derby said: “Knowing how to dust everyone with flour, he took these people into his own mistakes. In the management of political life, it is he who pulls their strings. “N’Djamena.
Mr. Derby’s powerful Patriotic Rescue (MPS) spokesperson Jean-Bernard Padare retorted: “Who prevented them from escaping? No one criticized.” He criticized those who flinched like Kebzopo. People calling for boycotts. He asserted: “This game is open, but they are party leaders without radicals.”
