Draft Law on local power passes in specialty at parliament

  • Assembleia Nacional
Luanda – The members of the specialized working committees of the National Assembly approved on Monday the Draft Law on the Regime and Forms of Acts of the Local Authority.

 

 

The draft law aims to define the regime, form, and structure of local authority acts, thus filling the gap that currently exists in the legal system in this area.

It also intends to set up the model forms to be used by the local authority's deliberative and executive bodies, namely, the local authority's assembly, the municipal council, and the mayor.

During the discussion, the MP of the ruling MPLA Ovídio Pahula, considered fundamental the implementation of the municipal legislative package to regulate the execution of tasks of the local entities.

The first vice-president of UNITA's parliamentary group, Maurílio Luiele, stressed the importance of the debate, adding that at this time he would like to see the law that institutionalizes local authorities also discussed.
