Elected with 98.59 percent of the total valid votes, João Lourenço said it is with the support of private entrepreneurs that the economy should diversify and reduce imports of essential goods, creating and increasing the jobs.

MPLA, according to its new leader, will also work to open greater possibilities to access to bank credit for all citizens who are entrepreneurs, regardless of their party affiliation.

It hopes, therefore, that the spectrum of national business will be a true rainbow with the diversity already existing in terms of gender, religion, region of origin, but also of party affiliation, where democracy reigns and the criterion is to be Angolan, creativity, entrepreneurship and the management capabilities.

At a time when the party is electing its new Political Bureau and members of its National Secretariat, João Lourenço hopes that members are elected based on with a proven ability to work, but above all courageous and committed to the cause of the party, so as to help it achieve a governance that addresses the main problems of society, the economy and citizens.

"I hope that in the MPLA bodies, women and youth will be better represented to contribute to the diagnosis and issues that most affect these two important fringes of Angolan society," he said.


The MPLA president said that the party faces the challenge of preparing for local elections, to establish local power throughout the country as a way of bringing governance closer to the citizen.
