Luanda - The MPLA parliamentary group expressed on Saturday its sadness over the death of member of parliament Raúl Danda, in Luanda.

In a statement of condolences, to which ANGOP had access, MPLA said it was with deep regret that its Parliamentary Group received the sad news of the death of the member of the National Assembly, Raúl Danda, occurred today.

According to the document, the death of member of parliament Raúl Danda represents an irreparable loss and leaves the Angolan political scene poorer, especially for the Parliamentary Group of UNITA, where he was president.

The MPLA also says that "despite our partisan differences, at many moments, throughout the three mandates that we were together in the exercise of parliamentary activity, we not only converged on many issues of national interest and diverged when it was necessary to defend structurally opposing positions, all on the basis of democratic values and principles".

Raúl Danda was, among other duties, president of the UNITA Parliamentary Group and vice-president of the same political party.

He was also a journalist, teacher and writer.

He graduated in Business Management and Economic Sciences from the Lusíada University of Angola, and was born in the Angolan province of Cabinda, on 13 November 1957.
