The round of negotiations between the three parties is going well, said the leader of the 'Galo Negro' party, explaining that they have the common aim of removing MPLA from power in the next elections.

In an interview to RTP Africa and quoted by Novo Jornal, Adalberto Costa Júnior justified the creation of the project with the fact that the country is going through a moment of "great concern", in what concerns "political intolerance" and "bad management" by the government of João Lourenço.

Leaving the promise that next month there will be "great news", UNITA's leader stressed that those looking for "a little bit of hope" will join the project.

When talking about the need for the various parties to unite, the leader defended that "alone you will not go anywhere".

In the interview to RTP Africa, Adalberto Costa Júnior stressed that he "wants to change the course of the country" and "meet the majority of Angolans".

The names that will make up the "Broad Front for Alternation in Angola" have not yet been chosen. However, according to Novo Jornal, the president of UNITA has already been designated as leader and Abel Chivukuvuku has been mentioned as the number two.

According to the same newspaper, on Tuesday, the political project issued a statement that Adalberto Costa Júnior, Abel Chivukuvuku (from PRA-JA Servir Angola), Filomeno Vieira Lopes (president of the Democratic Bloc) and Justino Pinto de Andrade (former president of the Democratic Bloc), met to discuss the activities to be developed under the project.
