Angola: President to receive activist Rafael Marques today
Cape Verde’s president said on Monday that there were “signs” of a “kind of populism” in the country, but ruled out the possibility of such ideas succeeding in the archipelago.
Jorge Carlos Fonseca told journalists there were signs of populism on social networks and in the press, which he said could be “seductive.”
Carlos Fonseca added that the world was seeing “corrosion in democracy systems” and warned that vigilance and pedagogy were needed to defend democratic values.
The speaker of Cape Verde’s parliament, Jorge Santos, said the greatest challenge for 2019 was the “consolidation of reforms” which began with the new government, and that he said aimed to increase the efficiency of the Cape Verdean parliament.Source: Lusa
