At a press conference in Maputo today, Gamito said that he had decided to leave before the end of his term because he turns 75 in September and wants to have retired by then.
The decision had already been submitted in February to the President of the Republic, who by law cannot refuse the request.

Hermenegildo Gamito was first appointed chairperson of the Constitutional Council by former president Armando Guebuza, in 2011, after the resignation of Luis Mondlane. President Filipe Nyusi reappointed Gamito to the post on May 2016.
The Constitutional Council is Mozambique’s highest body in matters of constitutional and electoral law.
