"As in the past, the organization of these parliamentary days faced financial constraints caused by the parliamentary administration, which for several months did not pay the subsidies owed to the parliamentary group", said this Friday the president of the parliamentary group, the National Union for Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), Liberty Chiyaka.
Speaking at a press conference to launch the 11th parliamentary days, scheduled for the province of Malanje, between the 3rd and 7th of October, the politician also announced that UNITA deputies will visit the 14 municipalities in that province.
UNITA, which elected 90 deputies in the last general elections on August 24, 2022, is holding its first parliamentary days at the end of the first parliamentary year (2022-2023) of the fifth legislature of parliament.
According to Liberty Chiyaka, the days, which take place under the motto "The UNITA Parliamentary Group for Democracy, Citizenship and Inclusive Development", include a courtesy visit to local authorities and the 14 municipalities in the province on October 4th.
The work begins on the 5th, with the opening of its president and general coordinator of the United Patriotic Front (FPU), Adalberto Costa Júnior, with debates in three panels that will address democracy, citizenship and development.
Chiyaka also highlighted that the party's parliamentary group is determined to defend the fundamental rights and freedoms of Angolan citizens.
"In the next legislative session we will bring with greater urgency initiatives that contribute to the consolidation of the democratic State and the rule of law and the dignification of life and the human person", he concluded.
The second parliamentary year of the fifth legislature of the National Assembly begins on October 15th with the President's speech on the State of the Nation.
