Green Party meeting with the Ministry of Local Government officials

On the 24th March, 2010 the interim leaders of the Democratic Green Party of Rwanda held a meeting with the representatives of the Ministry of Local Government (MINALOC), discussing issues related to the registration of The Green Party.

The democratic Green party of Rwanda (in-formation) was represented by Mr.Frank HABINEZA, Founder and Interim President and Mr.Charles KABANDA, Interim Secretary General, while the Ministry of Local Government was represented by Mr.Fred MUFURUKI, Director of Good Governance (in charge of political parties) and Mr.Oswald BURASANZWE, Director of Legal Affairs.

During the meeting that lasted nearly two hours, the representatives of both sides brainstormed on how all obstacles hindering the registration process of The Green Party could be resolved so that the Party can get registered.

Several issues were discussed, including : the problems that erupted in the Green Party Congress of 30th October 2009, the issue of a need of a police clearance requested by the District of Gasabo and the response given by the National Police, which ensured police’s commitment to protect people and their property.

It was agreed that during the next consultative meeting both parties will lay down strategies which will ensure an organized and peaceful Party founding Congress.

The Interim Leadership of the Democratic Green party of Rwanda would like to extend its sincere appreciation to the leadership of MINALOC for having organized such a wonderful meeting.

We would like to further emphasize that such an approach of seeking solution to problems through amicable means such as discussions should always characterize our dealings so that together we can build a stronger and better Rwanda.
