Angola: Parliamentary Year Ends On 13th August

Luanda — The National Assembly (AN) on August 13 will hold the solemn session to close the legislative year of the IV Legislature.

The information was provided on Tuesday by the spokesperson of the Parliament, Raúl Lima, at the end of the Conference of Parliamentary Leaders, which set the agenda for the 10th extraordinary plenary meeting on 10 August.

The end of the parliamentary year will be marked by a speech by the Speaker of the National Assembly, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos, and the presentation of the report on activities carried out in the last parliamentary term.

The president of the parliamentary group of MPLA, Virgílio Fontes Pereira, considered positive the balance of the activities carried out in the last parliamentary term, despite some limitations of financial order and others resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.

"It is practically unanimous the idea that, despite the limitations of the pandemic and of financial order, the National Assembly curiously increased, in this period, its productivity and we had more parliamentary meetings", he observed.

According to the MP, in general we saw an increase in the quality of the performance of the deputies, which was reflected not only in their pronouncements, but also in the political alignment that the AN managed to make, particularly in the process of the punctual revision of the Constitution and in the beginning of the discussion of the electoral package.

In the view of the leader of the MPLA parliamentary group, in these two periods it was noted that there was an improvement in concert and in the quality of the performance of the majority parliamentary groups (MPLA and UNITA).
