MPLA parliamentary group declares that there will be no dismissal of the President

The MPLA parliamentary group reaffirmed “its unconditional support” to its leader, guaranteeing “loud and clear” that there will be no dismissal of the President of the Republic, João Lourenço.


The position was expressed during the reading of the political declarations, by the leader of the parliamentary group of the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), Virgílio de Fontes Pereira.

"The MPLA parliamentary group reaffirms, here and now, its unconditional support for President João Lourenço, and declares loud and clear, there will be no dismissal of the President of the Republic João Manuel Gonçalves Lourenço, democratically elected by the majority of Angolans, period", said Fontes Pereira.

At issue is an initiative presented at the end of July by the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) for the removal of the President of the Republic, claiming that João Lourenço "subverted the democratic process in the country and consolidated an authoritarian regime that peace".

According to the leader of the MPLA parliamentary group, in recent years the political debate "has become a sterile discussion, marked by constant incidents between militants of political parties", considering that "without a doubt" UNITA "has been the main responsible for the climate of political tension that exists".

"Motivated by speeches that instigate hatred and differences, being, however, notorious, in its political agenda, the absence of clear objectives and ideas based on the assumption of Angolanity, capable of bringing together Angolan men and women in the continuation of the construction of a future of social justice, progress and well-being for all", he said.

Virgílio de Fontes Pereira stressed that the MPLA remains focused "on the consolidation of peace, on the daily exercise of the spirit of tolerance, reconciliation and forgiveness of all Angolans, as the MPLA considers peace as the greater good to be preserved".

"It is time for us, political actors - in particular the deputies of the National Assembly - to focus our action on the debate of ideas, instead of resurrecting ghosts, in particular the ghost of fraud and the ghost of the supposed lack of legitimacy of institutions", he stressed, appealing that the ghost of war "should not be used as a throwing weapon", which "has nothing to do with any insinuation to ignore the past".

For the MPLA parliamentary group, a party like its opponent, "has party options, destruction and conspiracy" and "has no vocation to exercise power".

"Because at the moment it resorts to all kinds of expedients, including slandering the country abroad, with international institutions, in a vain attempt to tarnish the image of Angola, its President and its executive to harm its projection", said Fontes Pereira.

The deputy appealed to young people not to fall "into the hands of those who, with false promises and cunning speech, taking advantage of the difficulties" with which they live, "instrumentalize them to achieve their political objectives, even if through unconstitutional ways".
