Chivukuvuku confident in the legalization of PRA-JA says there are other paths besides the TC

The coordinator of PRA-JA Servir Angola, Abel Chivukuvuku, said this Friday that he was confident in the legalization of his political project in 2024, highlighting that there are other paths besides the Constitutional Court (TC).

The politician, who was speaking to journalists on the sidelines of the first meeting of the provisional steering committee of PRA-JA Servir Angola, said that the process within the scope of the "appeal of appeal" against the decision of the Constitutional Court, which rejected reviewing the ruling that makes legalization unfeasible of the party, is in the "deliberation" phase.

"We used norms from the Penal Code and the Civil Code that allowed us to relaunch the process", a path that, according to him, had never been followed before.

The leader added that they have also filed four lawsuits against the Angolan State, due to the party's non-viability, and some members of the political project are already being heard by the Attorney General's Office (PGR).

Furthermore, "there are other paths" that he preferred not to clarify, trusting that in 2024 the party will be legalized.

"Because we managed to find ways that the bodies themselves did not think existed, we thought we were neutralized," he said, adding that system leaders, including the president of the TC, tried to convince him to initiate another process.

"Their problem is the credibility of the court, they know that what they did is illegal", he criticized.

In his speech, Chivukuvuku also addressed the role of the international community, asking them to "not look at Angola" just as a business space.

"We are afraid that the world has an illusory perception of Angola, because of business and geostrategic interests, but no, Angola is the people, it is the citizens. They have to be aware that the majority of the population in Angola suffers We are just asking you to do business, but always think that Angola is also the Angolans, who need to live well", he declared.

"We do not expect the international community to pretend that they do not know what is happening in Angola (...) there is no miracle. In Angola there is suffering", continued the leader of PRA-JA.

Abel Chivukuvuku, who was accompanied by his partners from the United Patriotic Front (FPU) platform, including the leaders of UNITA (largest opposition party), Adalberto Costa Júnior, and the Democratic Bloc, Filomeno Vieira Lopes, urged the President to dialogue with the president of UNITA, "whatever the differences."

"We need to understand that all together we have to solve the country's problems, through dialogue. And we are available. Now, there are people who do not have the capacity for dialogue, due to shyness or lack of ideas", he stated, appealing to them to meet " ways to have this dialogue."

Regarding whether dialogue is currently maintained with the President of the Republic, Chivukuvuku said that, in the past, he had dialogue, but at the moment he "avoids it".

"Are you going to talk to those who prevent you from existing", he asked, stressing that "you have to overcome small issues" and that criticism "does not exhaust the space for conversation".

For Chivukuvuku, the FPU is a permanent fact in national political life and will continue to be so in 2027.

"We have already demonstrated that, in 2022, we were a phenomenon and won the elections and this time it will be even more so," he said.

The TC definitively rejected, on December 7, 2020, the legalization of the Angolan Renaissance Party-Juntos Por Angola (PRA-JA) Servir Angola, for "not addressing insufficiencies" and presenting "ambiguous allegations", sending a new attempt from there four years, in a process that has been going on since 2019.

Abel Chivukuvuku left the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) in 2012, where he had been a member since 1974 and a former leader, and, in the same year, founded the coalition Convergência Ampla de Salvação de Angola - Coligação Eleitoral (CASA-CE).

In 2019, he was removed from the presidency by the constituent parties of the coalition for alleged "breach of trust" and in August he began the process of legalizing his new political formation, PRA-JA Servir Angola.

The process of legalizing PRA-JA Servir Angola has dragged on since August 2019, with successive "failures" from the Constitutional Court, alleging irregularities in the documentation presented for this purpose.
