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."
