In Chad, part of civil society has decided to monitor the military junta since April 20, following the death of President Idriss Deby. Through the Transition Observatory, some thirty civil society associations undertake to monitor the transitional work of the Military Council on a daily basis.

One week after the death of President Idriss Déby Itno, part of civil society gathered to reflect on the best way to influence the transition. At the end of the process, it was decided to create the Transition Observatory, a body responsible for recording the process.
The lawyer Me Nodjitoloum Salomon, and the human rights activist – he was president of Acat-Chad – are president of this observatory. “” First, (it is) to get a citizen to look at what will happen at the transition level. We take, for example, the inclusive dialogue that we hope for: we must try to look at who will participate in this dialogue, how this dialogue will be organized, how this dialogue can lead to resolutions, to recommendations that must unite all Chadians ”.
It will concretely involve civil society to follow the transition step by step which, despite some Chadians questioning, is still a fact. We will be both critical and a force of proposals, concludes Me Nodjitoloum Salomon, while Chadian social networks are outraged by controversy over the appointment of the junta, which protesters say does not address any concerns about national balance.
