Mozambique’s parliament is to sit next Thursday and Friday to hear and vote on extraordinary laws about decentralisation.
A parliamentary source told Lusa that parliament had concluded the opinions about the alterations that propose to bring the ordinary laws about decentralisation into line with the one-off alteration to the constitution about this matter that was approved in May.
May’s constitutional change was the result of agreement reached by Mozambique’s president, Filipe Nyusi, and opposition leader, Afonso Dhlakama, who died on 5 May.
The new text says that provincial governors will be elected using a ticket system and will no longer be appointed by the president of the country.
Mayors will also now be elected as the head of the list and no longer in a separate ballot.Source: Lusa
