Since the missed meeting of Tuesday March 28, the Municipal Council of Djidja has been in the midst of a political crisis. Indeed, following the resignation of Mayor Denis Glégbéto elected deputy to the 9th Legislature, the appointment of his successor is not unanimous among elected officials.
The prefect of Zou, Firmin Kouton, instructed by radio message the interim mayor to reconvene the Municipal Council for Monday, April 3, 2023 at 10 a.m. Two items are on the agenda of the extraordinary session: the communication of the name of the councilor appointed to be mayor of the municipality of Djidja to replace Denis Glégbéto, as well as various questions.
However, the proposal of the Republican Bloc (BR), the majority party in the Municipal Council, is not unanimous among the ranks of elected officials. During the session of March 28, 21 of the 25 councilors boycotted the session, thus showing their disagreement with the proposed appointment. This political crisis reveals tensions within the Municipal Council of Djidja, where councilors disagree on local governance. The appointment of a new mayor is an important issue for the municipality, which must face significant challenges in economic and social development.
