The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda Returns to Run for a Parliament SeatJennifer Fierberg, MSW Salem-News.com
The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda has announced their decision to return to Rwanda.
(WASHINGTON DC) - Politics in Rwanda is currently in a fragile state. Many foreign backers have withdrawn or suspended aid due to the actions of President Paul Kagame supporting the M23 rebel group in the DR Congo.
If there is ever an opportunity for opposition groups to the RPF to be organized and prepared it is now. One of these groups is the Democratic Green party of Rwanda.
The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda has announced their decision to return to Rwanda, formally register their party and run for a seat in Parliament. The Party has faced many challenges and tragedies in 2010 when they were attempting to run for the Presidential seat in the August 2010 election.
They were unable to register their party and the Vice President Andre Kagwa Rwisereka was found decapitated. Since that time Frank Habineza has been working tirelessly for the Party around the world to gain support and alliances. His efforts have paid off with strong supporters in Australia, Burkina Faso and other countries.
