The president of Quelimane municipality in Zambézia province told Noticias Online yesterday that he will run for the post again in local elections on 10 October.
Araújo made his announcement in response to rumours that he would not run because of low turnout at electoral registration posts, with only one day left before the end of the process.
The mayor appealed to all Quelimane citizens eligible to vote to go and register.
“Registering is not just a right. Registering is a duty, because only by registering can we exercise our right to vote, he said.
In his Youtube channel, Manuel Araújo went further, saying that residents who do not exercise their right to vote should not complain about the state of the roads or the lack of medicines and other ills that still besiege the capital of Zambézia province.
He asked for voters’ support to make it possible for him to be re-elected.
Manuel Araújo became president of the municipality with the support of the Mozambique Democratic Movement MDM, but has said that it would be premature to say whether he would stand again as the MDM candidate or as an independent.Source: Notícias
