The Head of State received the Secretary General of the Convergence for Social Democracy, with whom he discussed various issues of national and international news.
The audience took place at eleven o’clock on Thursday, May 17, in the People’s Palace of Malabo and during it, Placido Mico Abogo, Secretary General of the party of the opposition, Convergence for Social Democracy (CPDS), expressed to the Head of State of Equatorial Guinea his party’s support for the format of the laws related to the new bodies of the Constitutional Reform. The drafts of these new laws were turned in last Tuesday to the President of the Republic, two weeks after writing them in the city of Mongomo. Mico Abogo himself participated in these work sessions.
The amendments to the Electoral Law were some of the points that focused the attention of the representative of the main opposing political party, who told reporters that: “The credibility of the democratic process has much to do with how to organize the elections”.
At another point in the conversation, which lasted over an hour, the CPDS politician also asked the President to see that the Government of our country continues to financially support the Equatorial Guinean scholars taking courses at universities in Spain, and whose studies are in danger of being interrupted due to the Spanish subsidy cuts for education.
The meeting, attended by the State Minister for the Presidency of the Republic in Charge of Missions, Alejandro Evuna Owono Asangono, took place a day after the member of the Joint Group returned to Malabo, after attending the first regular sessions of Parliament in 2012, which took place in the city of Bata the last two months.
