Number of provinces in the country will increase from 18 to 20

The country is going to have two new provinces, increasing the number from 18 to 20. The measure is foreseen in the preliminary version of the proposal for the Administrative Political Division Law, which was appreciated this Wednesday, in the second Ordinary Session of the Council of Ministers.


The two new provinces, according to Jornal de Angola, will come from Moxico and Cuando Cubango.

The document also provides for the elevation of urban districts and communes to the category of municipalities which, according to Jornal de Angola, will rise to 581 against the current 164.

According to the final communiqué of the Council of Ministers, to which VerAngola had access, the diploma "aims, fundamentally, to clarify the intermunicipal and interprovincial border limits" as well as "reduce local asymmetries through the creation of two new provinces and the elevation of urban districts and communes to the category of municipalities".

Furthermore, the measure also intends to "promote a more harmonious management of the territorial units, by guaranteeing the demographic balance and the effective occupation of the national territory", as well as "progressively creating the necessary conditions to make the economic, social and citizens' cultural interests and prevent territorial management conflicts, whether in the current context of strengthening administrative and financial deconcentration or in that of decentralized governance, thus promoting the provision of a more efficient public service to the populations".

The final communiqué from the Council of Ministers states that the proposal will continue "to be discussed by the State's local administration bodies and the various social partners, for subsequent final appreciation by the Council of Ministers".

The session also discussed, for submission to the National Assembly, the proposal for a General Labor Law, which has a "set of norms adjusted to the country's new social and economic reality".

According to the communiqué, the Council of Ministers also assessed some aspects in the field of oil and gas, having approved the "extension of the date of the first survey of crude oil in the Gardénia Forsythia development area, in Block 17/06, until September 30, 2024" and "amendments to the Investment Contract for the Angola LNG Project, negotiated between the Ministry of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas, the National Agency for Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels, Angola LNG Limited, Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Limited, Sonangol Gás Natural, Limitada, BP Exploration (Angola) Limited, Total LNG Angola and ENI Angola Prodution BV", among others.

Also worthy of note is the approval of various bilateral instruments, within the scope of foreign policy, among other matters that were considered in the session led by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço.
