…Announces for 21 March 1994, the formation of his Government, in a byzantine declaration implicating everyone, and announcing nothing new. He also announces the list of candidates, arbitrarily selected by himself. Then, he decides that the said Government shall be established before 21st March 1994. Among the Ministers are mentioned, for M.D.R., Mr. Nsengiyaremye Dismas, Mr. Ngulinzira and even the ex-Prime Minister, who functions without functioning Madam Uwilingiyimana Agathe,

For the P.L. party, he names… he’s trying to name, notably, Mr. Mugenzi Justin and Mr. Landoald Ndasingwa. Let’s remind you, anyway, that according to the information received from some Chairmen of parties, Mr. Faustin Twagiramungu, might have taken this decision without consulting them. They’re not informed [inaudible]. Tomorrow, we’ll, of course, fully develop
this subject.

On the other hand, Faustin has lost his case against Mr. Karnali Sylvestre, Candidate for Deputyship of M.D.R. Power Gisenyi. These are some details for this sentence passed by the Tribunal of First Hearing.
