National Mediation Committee
A national mediation committee is in place. It is made up of civil society, clergy and respected Congolese intellectuals. The committee should be empowered to find out the true will of the Congolese people - how did they actually vote. The committee can serve as a platform to bring the political class together in a round table to determine how the people actually voted and establish the best way to move beyond the current political impasse. The ultimate outcome of the mediation committee would be to devise a solution that is credible and acceptable to the political class and the Congolese population at-large. The mediation committee would require the support of the international community (Southern African Development Community, African Union, European Union, United Nations, United States and United Kingdom) in order to bring the opposing political sides to the round table.
