These statements were made Wednesday, in Luanda, by the Secretary of State for Mass Media, Celso Malavoloneke, while speaking at a speech on “Local power: What is expected of journalists. Contribution of Social Communication”, promoted by Angop, as part of the commemoration of its 44th anniversary, which will be celebrated on the 30th October.

He explained that the Legislative Package is an instrument aimed at removing all obstacles and bureaucracies in order to facilitate the creation of community radios and clubs, as well as reducing the costs for opening these communication vehicles.

The revision of this document, he added, will promote increased freedom of the press and expression, as well as more actively support the country's democratization process, helping future mayors to conduct electoral campaigns with local media.

The official said that before the approval of this package by the Parliament, the Ministry of Mass Media will run a broad consultation campaign with partners such as the Episcopal Commission of Mass Media of the Episcopal Conference of Angola and Sao Tome (CEAST), Women's Association, Angolan female journalists Association (AMUJA), Angolan trade union Journalists (SJA), Angolan Journalists Union (UJA), Angolan Economic Journalists Association (AJECO), among other organizations.

The State Secretary stressed that these meetings are intended to collect contributions to enrich the Legislative Media Package.
