The equally militant of the party was speaking in a debate promoted by the Public Television of Angola (TPA), on the eve of the transfer of the presidency of the MPLA from José Eduardo dos Santos to João Lourenço, that takes place next Saturday, September 8.

In this regard, Mário Pinto de Andrade defended a "new mentality" of the MPLA towards future challenges, while at the same time endorsing in President João Lourenço the commitment to put in place this new dynamic.

The future of the MPLA, according to the politician, also goes through a renewal at the level of the Political Bureau and the Secretariat, to allow the party to be continuously winning and increasingly inserted in society.

"It is necessary that the generation of José Eduardo dos Santos has the courage to leave with him," said Mário Pinto de Andrade, for whom the MPLA has to count on a younger generation, capable, competitive and, also, more patriotic.

According to Mário Pinto de Andrade, the MPLA put an end to the phase in which those who did not accomplished with their duties would rest for a year and then were appointed to other functions.

MPLA analyst and activist Manuel Miguel de Carvalho "Wadijimbi" approved an eventual "stirring" in the Political Bureau and in the Party Secretariat, "within the principle of renewal and continuity."

Wadijimbi said that a new look must be given to the Political Bureau and to the MPLA Secretariat to allow the party to be continuously winning and to be increasingly inserted into society.  He also Also, emphasized that João Lourenço's personal strategy  towards  the party can only be fulfilled in the ordinary congress of 2022.

Another analyst, the agronomist Fernando Pacheco, advocated  for a "balance" between the generations, so that the experience of the elders passed on to the younger.

Fernando Pacheco welcomed the fact that João Lourenço assumed the leadership of MPLA. In his view, only as a leader of the party will it be possible to trigger an entire process leading to an eventual constitutional revision.
