AQMI Strategy Corporation Lays Claim to Aiding Successful Pro-Democracy Movement in Congo

    ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- With the final run-off election
 nearing a close in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), AQMI
 Strategy Corporation of Orlando, Florida is looking back on their
 involvement with the recent democratic election for the office of president
 in the former war-torn nation with both success and achievement, along with
 some disappointment. Despite running a grassroots, social policy issues
 campaign, the candidate supported by AQMI, Dr. Oscar Kashala, finished in
 5th place out of 33 candidates and did not make the final election run-off.
 Consequently, their contractual agreement with presidential candidate Dr.
 Oscar Kashala formally ended in September of this year. However, the
 company's lasting effect on the pro-democracy movement that the Kashala
 candidacy created will be felt for years to come and will some day result
 in improved living conditions for the people of the DRC.
     Frank L. Amodeo, President of AQMI Strategy, had this to say about his
 firm's involvement in the unprecedented election process occurring in the
 African nation: "We were enriched by our participation as a part of the
 first free and fair democratic elections in the DRC and we believe that the
 United Nations and European Union have been doing, and continue to do, a
 spectacular job for the future of the Congolese people and the
 international community. We are confident that because of this election,
 life for the millions of Congolese will improve for the better."
     The run-off General Election which will be held on October 29th pits
 the current President, Joseph Kabila, against one of the country's vice
 presidents, ex-rebel leader Jean-Pierre Bemba. When the results are
 announced later in November, one of them will be named the newly-elected
 head of the first true democratic government in the DRC. Amodeo added, "Our
 relationship ended with Dr. Kashala in late September and we are not taking
 a position with either of the remaining two candidates. Our focus is to
 continue to advocate for a pro-democracy movement with social reforms aimed
 at improving the lives of the Congolese people. We hope to do much more in
 the Congo when the elections and the transition to a new democratic
 government are completed."
