The ALN followed the political dialogue that took place in March 2013 with the assistance of the United Nations Office in Burundi (Bureau des Nations Unies au Burundi – BNUBe). It is pleased with the resolutions contained in the road map and encourages the government to maintain its commitment to scrupulously respecting the 42 points in said road map. However, the ALN notes with regret that the government refuses to consult with the other partners, as was proposed in the road map, the constitution and the Arusha Accord, in examining the amendments to the constitution.
The ALN supports the three parliamentary groups that protested against this solitary approach by the party in power. The network also supports the point of order raised by the opposition party of the ADC-IKIBIRI coalition, demanding that the road map be respected.
The ALN therefore calls on the government to be more discerning and to immediately and directly open up the debate to all concerned parties in order to prevent any risk of derailment. The network rejects any temptation by the law enforcement agencies to turn to intimidation and violence when faced with those claiming their legitimate right to be consulted in drawing up a document as fundamental at the constitution.
