Luanda – The First Vice Speaker of the National Assembly, João Lourenço, last Friday in Luanda appealed to political parties and coalitions, candidates and other political actors to adopt a responsible and exemplary civic behaviour, in face of the current electoral
process, which will culminate with the casting of ballot on August 31, 2012.
“To citizens in general and the youth in particular we appeal for respect of the law, other persons and public property, abstain from violent behaviour that threaten or put at risk the security and tranquillity of citizens”, he said.
João Lourenço said so when delivering a speech at the opening of the official talks between the parliamentary delegations of Angola and Cuba, which are aimed at studying the strategies and mechanisms of concert to reinforce the friendship and co-operation relations between the two institutions, governments and peoples.
After summing the current electoral process in Angola, he reminded that several political organisations have submitted to the Constitutional Court their application to participate in the 2012 general elections, which means will present to the electorate their socio-political projects.
João Lourenço is leading the Angolan delegation at the talks, whereas the Cuban team is being headed by that country’s National Assembly Speaker Ricardo Alarcón de Quesada.
The Cuban parliamentary delegation is in Angola since last Thursday on an official visit.
The talks are to finish on Monday with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding.
