Rwanda has embraced a pluralistic political system defined by Dialogue and
Consensus approach in order to tackle issues of national and local interest. This
commitment is clearly set out in article 9 of the Constitution which commits
the Government of Rwanda to promote and reinforce a number of fundamental
principles among which the principle of “constant quest of solutions through Dialogue and Consensus”. The Senate has been assigned the role of ensuring that the principle is being implemented nationwide (article 87of the Constitution).
