COVID-19: COMMISSION MEETS WITH POLITICAL PARTIES

Luanda – The Multisectoral Commission for the Prevention and Fight against Covid-19 meets this Tuesday with the political parties represented in Parliament to address issues related to the Presidential Decree on the Situation of Public Calamity.

The Parliament has four political parties and one coalition, namely MPLA, UNITA, CASA-CE, PRS and FNLA.

In a statement sent to Angop on Monday, the commission explained that the meeting was the result of non-compliance by the parties with the rules on mass political events in public spaces.

According to the commission, for some time now, political parties have been organising mass events with their militants, friends and sympathisers, in several arteries of the city and outlying areas, which essentially call into question the observance of biosecurity rules laid down in Presidential Decree 150/21 of 8 June.

The decree establishes that mass political activities should only take place with a maximum of 50 people, in Luanda, while in the other provinces they may take place in the presence of 100 people. The violation of this assumption is liable to a fine.
