Abstract:This paper analyzes government collaboration in the context of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic in the democratic republic of congo (drc). it reveals that during the period of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, relations between the president of the republic and the parliament, on the one hand, and between the parliament and the judiciary, on the other hand, were marked by tensions and mistrust. while the tensions in relations between the president of the republic and parliament are the result of the crisis that shook the fcc-cach coalition and the desire of each camp to exercise control over inec and the constitutional court, those between parliament and the judiciary are due to the desire of the latter to emancipate itself from the supervision of politicians in order to play its role as guarantor of individual liberties and the fundamental rights of citizens, as well as to the perception that parliamentarians have of their immunities and the autonomy of their parliamentary chambers. the study also shows that the lack of harmonious collaboration between the public authorities, particularly the president of the republic and parliament, has caused a political crisis that led the president of the republic to end the fcc-cach coalition, as well as the aggravation of the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic in all sectors of national life. this lack of collaboration by the public authorities has put and endangers the future of the rule of law and democracy in the drc and prevents these authorities from facing together the crisis caused by the coronavirus that is plunging the population from poverty.
