UNITA worried about cost of living and lack of government solutions

The National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) expressed concern this Wednesday over the high cost of living in the country, with salaries affected by "galloping and unstoppable inflation", without solutions presented by the government.


The position is expressed in the final communiqué of the meeting of the council of the presidency and the second regular meeting of the standing committee of the political committee, held on Monday and Tuesday, respectively.

In the document, UNITA also highlights the growing levels of unemployment that affect mainly young people, which "make the situation of numerous families, who survive from economic informality, unbearable.

The largest opposition party urges the government to consider a return to normality in all sectors of life in the country, accompanied by the rigorous practice of biosecurity measures in the face of the covid-19 pandemic, which include the education of citizens.

A reflection on the real effectiveness of maintaining the Luanda health fence, "which has proved to be at the root of the acceleration of bankruptcy of many companies, the increase in unemployment and social instability", is also a point that UNITA asks the Government to take into consideration.

Regarding the political chapter, UNITA regretted and condemned the stagnation of the country's political agenda and the postponement by the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) of the institutionalization of local municipalities, whose first elections were scheduled for this year.

"Reiterate that local authorities throughout the national territory are an indispensable cornerstone for laying the foundations for building the Angolan nation," reads the note, which also considers the conclusion of the municipal legislative package to be urgent, with the approval of the law institutionalizing local authorities in the country.

Internally, the members of those two party bodies urged the improvement of permanent measures to consolidate the unity of the party and the cohesion of its leadership, "in order to guide UNITA to the conclusion of the broad democratic movement for alternation that most Angolans so desire.

"To encourage the party's president, Adalberto Costa Júnior, to persist in the path of patriotic dialogue with the President of the Republic in order to reach the necessary consensus for the viability of Angola as a state and nation under construction that will benefit all its children," the communiqué highlights.

Regarding the social situation, UNITA questions the effectiveness of the management measures of the covid-19 pandemic by the instituted organs, "which have proved insufficient to contain the spread of the virus throughout the country.

The massive testing of communities and the urgent need to overcome restrictions placed "by purely commercial interests", as well as to end the exclusivity of the Ministry of Health in carrying out covid-19 tests "at scandalous prices and inaccessible to the overwhelming majority of the population" were also recommendations of the political organization.
