Opposition wants priority for social sector

  • Plesidium da  Sessão Plenaria Assembleia Nacional
Luanda – The opposition parties suggested, last Tuesday, to the Executive to give more priority to the sectors of health, education, production, combating hunger, poverty and unemployment.

In the discussion for the vote, in general terms, of the 2021 OGE (General State Budget) proposal, the whip of the main opposition party, UNITA, Liberty Chiaca, said that there should be an increase in the health, education and production sectors.

 

He said that UNITA does not agree with the 2021/General State Budget proposal because there are no guarantees in the budgetary allocation of the unequivocal commitment to the social sector.

 

The CASA-CE parliamentary group, on the other hand, states that the 2021/OGE proposal does not contemplate effectively, commitment to the most urgent and most pressing sectors of society.

 

He adds that the proposal does not bring happiness to families; on the contrary it further aggravates living conditions of populations.

 

The Social Renewal Party (PRS) wants an OGE  that, in addition to consolidating the macroeconomic stabilization, promotes employment and agricultural production.

 

FNLA President Lucas Ngonda believes that OGE should, in addition to health and education, prioritize the production of essential products.

 

MPLA highlights positive impact of OGE 2021

The whip of the ruling MPLA, Américo Cuononoca, said that the proposal of the 2021/OGE predicts a direct positive social impact on the life of the national population.

 

"The present OGE is aimed at people, with actions of immediate direct impact on the life of the population, aiming at the equitable distribution of national revenue", said the politician.

 

With this action, he added, the Executive will generate a quality public service in the health, education, clean water, security, land transport and basic sanitation services.

 

During the discussions, MPLA and opposition differed substantial on their point of views on the 2021/OGE proposal.

 

In general, the document was approved with 127 votes in favour, 45 against and one abstention.

 

Unita and Casa-Ce voted against, while the PRS abstained.

 

The document was approved with the votes of the MPLA and the FNLA.
