Luanda — The dialogue between citizens and sovereign bodies (Executive, Legislative and Judicial Powers), plays a leading role in full operation of a democratic and law abiding State.
The importance of dialogue was stressed Thursday by the university professor, Celso Malavoloneke at the 2nd National Conference on the participation of citizens in public life, held in Luanda.
Speaking on the theme "dialogue as a factor of national unity", Celso Malavoloneke said that the dialogue should be a circular and collective process where everyone can share, know and be known by fellow citizens and take responsibly their place in society.
In this context, he said that the Angolan State should ensure dialogue with young people, who make up the foundation for the future of the Angolan nation.
"As recognized by the President José Eduardo dos Santos, one must hear the people's voice, not only because they are the future of the nation, but especially because they are our present," he said.
The event was sponsored by the Forum of Women Journalists for Gender Equality, Free Hands (ML), Justice Peace and Democracy Association (AJPD), Women Platform in Action (PMA) and Action for Development and Environment (ADRA) with support by the Norwegian government.
