The Mozambican parliament resumes plenary sittings today. Debates may include legal changes related to a new peace agreement for the country.
Expectations are centred on the discussion of a legal revision that introduces the election of the provincial governors, seen by Renamo (National Resistance Movement), the main opposition party, as fundamental to peace.
Although a review of the decentralisation package is not included on the official agenda, both Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi and Renamo leader Afonso Dhlakama have repeatedly stated that the points they are negotiating must be agreed by end of this year.
The legislature session will last until December 15, when it will be brought to a close to allow members to join their families for the festive season, according to the timetable announced to journalists.
President Nyusi will deliver his state of the nation address and the Ombudsman his annual report, and questions from the members of parliament will also feature in the assembly’s agenda, under the chairmanship of Verónica Macamo.
The chamber will also debate the 2018 Economic and Social Plan (PES) and State Budget (OE).
The reconvening ends the three months or so allotted to the work of deputies in their respective constituencies.Source: Lusa /O País
